Elements (1) of Adobe CS2 install C-dilla (2) without telling you that it is doing so.
On two machines I have had the c-dilla software fight with my firewall, disable my antivirus (nortons) and disable the cd rom & or DVD rom. It doesn't seem to like methlabs peer guardian either.
The c-dilla software has also disabled my legitamite copies of Adobe software (while ignoring the one piece of illigitimite Adobe software I installed to test it).
Uninstalling c-dilla from add/remove apps does not work as it installs spray fashion and is designed to be problematic in removal. On my laptop I had to format the HD to remove the f****r. Adobe admit to installing the software in some news articles but are very quiet about it on their website.
I wouldn't care but this software seems to attack other pieces of software on my system such as demon tools, recordnow, norton antivirus, Kerio firewall (which is a crap firewall anyway as it is no where near as configurable as sygate for example).
Can anyone tell me how to disabe the c-dilla and still allow me to run (my legal copies) of Illustrator, photoshop and acrobat exchange?
It seems that to run adopbe software that I have purchased adobe are now dictating what I amallowed to install onto my computer.
1. Either adobe acrobat or adobe bridge
2. a macrovision protection system monitoring software.
