I downloaded on trial the latest Photoshop but it really made my computer run very slowly so I tried to remove it. Ever since then my computer will freeze when I manually try and remove some elements of photo shop. How can I ensure all elements are removed if this occurs. Even if i am doing a security scan when it reaches the remaining photoshop elemants it will freeze. Thoughts and ideas please computer will be put in bin at this rate.

Sounds like you have other problems with your computer. If your whole computer is freezing that indicates a possible hardware failure or low level driver failing (possibly for your video card).

That said, manually deleting Photoshop from your system isn't recommended. It's best to use the uninstaller to remove Photoshop CS6 correctly:

If you didn't uninstall using the uninstaller, you can use the Adobe Creative Suite Cleaner Tool:
