How to uninstall Adobe Application Manager (Mac OS X)

Credit: Softpedia

Today I thought I will be installing adobe after effects to improve my editing skills for my YouTube videos. I installed Adobe After Effects and then these Adobe Application Manager and other related stuff was installed altogether.

 After that, I watched youtube for the tutorials for adobe after effects and decided to use just my iMovie for simple stuff and I uninstalled Adobe After Effects. Even though the software was uninstalled, Adobe Application Manager was still installed and I thought it was a virus.

 Then I researched and did everything that I could and that application manager wasn't able to uninstall. I tried uninstalling it the normal ways but then I tried this method and it worked.

Click the "Finder" icon on the desktop, then click the "Macintosh HD" entry.
Click the "Library" folder, then click "Application Support."
Click the "Adobe" folder, then click the "Adobe Application Manager." 
Drag the Adobe icon onto the "Trash" icon on your desktop. 
Click "Finder" on the menu bar, then click "Empty Trash" to remove the Adobe Application Manager utility from your Mac. 

AND~~

Go to the "Finder" and search for "AAM". (They tried to hide it with the short form named "AAM") 
Drag everything that ADOBE related to the "Trash" folder and Click "Empty Trash".
Then go to the "Launchpad" and press the "Option" key for a while and you will see "X" button for the AAM application and just delete by clicking the "X" button which is deleting the application.

UPDATE: 

I had another incident that I install Adobe again, so this time round, they went and hide into other folders. If the above does not work for you, I hope this trick might help you out.

Click the "Finder" icon on the desktop, then click the "Macintosh HD" entry.
Click the "Applications" folder, then click "Utilities" folder.
Click the "Adobe Application" folder and the associate adobe installers to trash. 
Click "Finder" on the menu bar, then click "Empty Trash" to remove the Adobe Application Manager utility from your Mac. 

I hope it's useful for you.
