Part 1

Remove the following Adobe applications and files before installing the Adobe CS5 Master Collection:
/Applications/Adobe? (everything with Adobe)
/Library/Application Support/Adobe

/Library/Preferences/com.adobe... (everything with com.adobe)
~/Library/Application Support/Adobe
~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Acrobat
