Tried to uninstall it in Add or Remove Programs, it looks for a file that does not exist (an installer file) and won't uninstall.
Tried to use Windows Clean-up. Selected 8.1.2 to remove, but it's still there.
I can't print any PDF files (and my printer is also on the fritz - see my other post) so I'm in a real pickle. I have to somehow get some documents off the web asap, and I can't do it!!!
I remember reading somewhere (after the fact) that you need to uninstall any older versions of Acrobat on your computer before installing 8.1.2., which, of course, I didn't.
I see that others are recommending a program called "Foxit?" which I don't know anything about.
If someone is knowlegable about pdf readers, please give me pros/cons about both, I use other Adobe products just fine, and this is the very first time I have every encountered a problem with Acrobat. For years, it ran just quiety and without error until I upgraded to 8.1.2.
Am I doomed to never use Adobe acrobat again because they've buggered up their newest versions? My preference is to fix my install and use the new Adobe, but if it's a goner, then I need to know about other alternatives (Foxit, whatever). I hate to go to something new and then have issues of compatability with it, too.
Please, ideas / suggestions?
