I was trying to upgrade my Adobe Reader 8 to Adobe 9 and I got an error message that says "can not find key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run\Optional Components\MSFS So then I tried uninstalling the old Adobe first and I still got the same message.
I downloaded uninstaller and it still does it. Is there any way of fixing this? Thanks

Can you reinstall Adobe 8 Then use Add/Remove to uninstall it again while making sure there are no other applications running
