I have tried time and time again to remove Adobe Reader 6.0.1 to install the latest version.However when I do this I keep getting this error: The feature you are trying to use in on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the Adobe 6.0.1 disk and click OK.

Can somebody please tell me how I can get around this as I no longer have the disk.

Thanks

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.
Are you trying to uninstall Adobe from the "Add or Remove Programs" utility in the Control Panel?

Yes I am. It appears to start un-installing and then the mentioned error appears.

Give the manual removal instructions a try, depending on your os:

Remove Adobe Reader 6.x (Windows XP and 2000)

Remove Adobe Reader 6.x (Windows ME or 98SE)

From my experience, this would update to other 6 versions, but not to version 7.

Note: If you have other Version 6 Adobe products, such as Adobe Standard, to create PDF files do not uninstall Version 6 of the reader as you will run into difficulties previewing the documents. You can install version 7 and retain version 6 and both will work. Your own program will use version 6 and any files on your drive will open in 6 by default, but PDF files from the internet will open in version 7.

Another suggestion: If you want to install an older version or run into the Insert CD problem, go to this page: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/read...llversions.html Select your operating system and language then hit continue. You will then see a page with older versions of Adobe Reader which you can download. For the insert CD problem, download to a disk or flash and I think you could use it in lieu of the CD.
