If you been having or continue to have issues overall. I'd advise to remove everything adobe related, and start all fresh.

# Procedure

# 1. Remove any trace of ALL Adobe

  1. Run Adobe Cleaner Tool in ALL | (E, Y, 1, Clean All, Y)
  2. Check Windows Control Panel > Uninstall, and see if the app was removed successfully, otherwise remove it there manually.

# 2. Delete Adobe folders from your disk, usually "C:"

  • Program files
  • Program files\common files
  • Program files x86
  • Program files x86\common files
  • %appdata%
  • appdata\local
  • appdata\local\temp
  • appdata\roaming

# 3. Registry Editor

  1. Windows key, write "registry editor" should show up
    Look for Software and delete Adobe.

# 4. Remove Windows Firewall rules or Host File lines

For Windows Firewall

  • Go to Windows > Windows Firewall > Advanced Settings
  • Check both in Inbound and Outbound
  • Remove or disable any rules blocking adobe processes or services, could be named with CCStopper or any other name you gave them.
  • If you created these in your AntiVirus, you'll have to do the same there.

For Host File

  • Go to %WinDir%\System32\Drivers\Etc
  • Right-click on "hosts" file, "Open with notepad" and remove all the lines related to "# BLOCK ADOBE #" in this post, save the file and reboot your system:
DEFAULT HOST LINES - You can copy-and-paste it
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
#     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#       localhost
#	::1             localhost

# 5. Restart the PC

Adobe should not be in your system, and if you install it again it will behave normally 🙂
