Alright, heres what I am pissed off at right now. I was NICELY installing Adobe CS4 on my Windows XP Professional system, then I accidently unplugged the computer halfway through the installation. This is what I am really pissed off at, because now, the software is halfway installed and the only way of fixing this problem is to really format and spend over 16 hours reinstalling windows which I have worked hard on.

I am deciding to uninstall the bad installation of Adobe CS4 and I am going to install it again, hoping that my computer will NOT slow down after this.

I mean seriously. Why is Microsoft and Adobe SO blind that they can't understand when a customer installs a software and SOMETIMES in the middle of an installation, a machine can turn off unintentionally, that they can at LEAST add in a feature to RESUME such a big installation? I am really pissed off right now and I am HOPING that I don't need to format the machine, except uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe CS4 will be like Installing it for the 1st time. I really hope a big company having a similar problem files a lawsuit against these company who didn't add support to accidents and failures.

Please tell me what I should do with my installation, if I uninstall and reinstall, will it impact system performance?

Why can't you just reinstall and let adobe overwrite the files that are present .

Formatting the entire system because of a failed installation seems a bit drastic.

worldlibary, I am doing that right now, but my concern is if the computer becomes slow if it does that. I only hope that it runs the same as if It were installing the 1st time.

Thank you for replying my post and sorry for flaming.

""Why is Microsoft and Adobe SO blind"

I'm sorry, Did either of them trip over your power cord?

Re installing should not have any adverse effect.

Go to control panel for installed programs. If it shows up it would have a repair feature. Try it first. Otherwise a simple start the CS install again.

Thanks guys, I managed to uninstall and reinstall it, but here is my question. Will the computer be slower if the incident didn't happen?
