Unless you're completely in love with and must have adobe. You could opt for an alternative with a smaller footprint and get rid of adobe altogether. But no, if you have reader 10 you don't need 6 unless you have an old application that isn't compatible that uses it. But you can always reinstall the old version if you find you need it from here: http://www.oldversion.com/Acrobat-Reader.html

My .pdf reader of choice happens to be PDF-XChange Viewer if you were looking for a suggestion. :whistle:

There are others like Foxit and Sumatra as well as others.

OK,..now the removal of Adobe 6,..when I tied to remove it,..it tells me that there has been a "fatal" error and cannot perform this task at this time,..I tried 3-4 times and tells me the same thing,..that's why I thought it Adobe x needed 6,...I heard of Foxit,..is that one that Monzilla Firefox recommends?

Foxit has no relationship with Mozilla or Firefox.

If you still can't uninstall Adobe 6, try using Revo Uninstaller Free: http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
