I recently updated a ton of stuff through the Windows web site. I also updated updated Adobe reader. Could someone let me know if I have to keep the old versions or can I remove them.

Many new versions overwrite the old ones.

Use REVO uninstaller to check if you have multiple versions and you can safely uninstall the old ones.

It's a good idea to keep your softwares updated to the latest versions as they often have bugs fixes and generally improved from the previous versions but sometimes new versions can contain new bugs. It's best to update only if you really have to and wait for a while before you update to the latest versions.
