what i am going to recommend YOU have to decide if it is OK
I take NO responsability
using the registry editor can leave your pc unoperable if the wrong item is deleted.

use the registry editor and the registry editors search function. search for adobe ( assuming you have nothing else adobe) delete what you find, finally go to the program group and delete the adobe folder. go to run type in msconfig , look in startup, delete ref to adobe.
