Hello!

If you still can't uninstall Adobe 6, try using Revo Uninstaller Free:

I really like Foxit Reader.I got rid of Adode Reader a long time ago.
I also have Revo.I'm sure you are aware that CCleaner now has a uninstall feature. Have you tried it and do you recommend it?
Thanks Animal!!

No, I do not use CCleaner for anything. I have other tools I prefer.

Agree. Ccleaner does not do anything you can't do yourself. And people seem to think it's a panacea when, in my opinion, it's nothing more than a crutch.

Additionally, for every feature / module in ccleaner there are far superior dedicated utilities.

And it just keeps getting better......

CCleaner been around sense 2004. Must be doing something right.That's about the time I got my first PC
16,956,292 CNET down loads. I suspect even more for Piriform.I guess we can still agree to disagree on BC.
I like CCleaner.One click and the crap is gone. I also have other Apps. I use to keep my PC tuned up!!

Because people don't know any better. Delete crap from your computer? It deletes temp files, cookies, history, empties the recycle bin, etc. Nothing that needs to be done, nothing you can't easily do yourself, and nothing that effects system performance in any way, shape or form.

And you have other apps to keep your system "tuned up"? Other than defragmenting the hd and monitoring / scanning for malware - what tuning up is there to be done?

CCleaner's uninstall function is just another interface to Windows' Add/Remove Programs control panel; it doesn't do anything that Windows can't already do itself.

Thank you Andrew! I'm glad to know that. I'll probably continue to use Revo.I haven't uninstalled any thing lately. I read about CCleaner uninsataller on CNET, but doubt if they know much.
Thank you sir!!

CNET will recommend and host for download anything and everything. A recommendation from CNET is not worth the pixels it's printed with, in my opinion.

I'm tired of fighting with you my friend.I think I may be entitled to my opinion here on BC. Every thing I post you find fault with and that's OK ,but I'm tired of this and I won't be commenting any further.
Thank you!
