Maybe this is a dumb question but I have to ask it anyway. While reinstalling my programs after my son reformatted my PC I installed Adobe 8 as part of something else but can't remember what. At the time I didn't reinstall my Microsoft office 2000 as I didn't really use it and was trying to only have programs which I used installed. I remember that all my note/wordpadfiles became Adobefiles at the time.
Today my daughter asked me to reinstall Office as she needed it for some of her college coursework. On reinstallation all my written files have now reverted to Word which is okay but my question now is what do I need Adobe for. I cannot ever remember seeing it on anything other than written files and if it is not being used I might as well uninstall it. I just wanted to check that this is okay to do so that I don't get a problem with some necessary invisible application which needs Adobe to run.
In my add or remove list of programs I have Adobe Reader 8 and Adobe Flash Player 9 Active X listed.
Appreciate any help offered. Thanks in advance,
