Can any one tell me how to get this off the Computer... I've tried add remove won't take it off says that the patch package could not be opened... I've even tried to manually delete it by just right clicking on the folder and clicking Delete
I was just going to update to the newer version. I called tech support and they want $39.00 not worth it for them to probably say well You need to do a Clean Install.. Any Help..?


Thanks,
Jeff

Take a look in the Adobe Reader Program Files folder. If there is a file in there called something like 'uninst. exe' double click that. At the worst nothing will happen.

If you can't find an uninstall file, I believe you can run setup.exe and it will ask if you want to remove or install. You can also try the windows installer cleanup utility. Some people have had luck with that.

This problem is discussed rather frequently on Adobe's forums, they do offer a command line uninstaller
