Hi all,

I always use Security Check by screen317 to ensure my programs are up to date. However, it keeps telling me that I have Adobe Reader 9.0 on my system. I am certainly running the most current version of Adobe, and I can't find a reference to Adobe 9 anywhere on my system. Can any of you tell me where version 9 may be hiding so I can delete it?

I did a search for “Adobe” on my system and I got over 200 listings. When I search for Adobe 9, or reader 9, I get no hits. It's not listed in my uninstall list either.

Did you try to uninstall it with Windows Installer Cleanup Utility or third party programs such as AppRemove or Revo uninstaller?

Otherwise, you may reinstall Adobe Reader 9 and remove it via Add/Remove Programs or with third party programs. If no luck, kill all and get a new copy. :wink:

Adobe Reader is now Version 11 - Untick the Google Option when installing - Download this version first -

Install the latest version and check in ADD / REMOVE to see what is installed now -
