Hi guys :flowers:

not sure if this in the right place, so if its not i apologise in advance!

Basically im having trouble with adobe reader. I downloaded version 6 (this was a while back) but it just wont work. Everytime i try to install, repair or uninstall, i get a box saying that it is 'trying to use a network resource that is unavailable'. It says that 'the path 'C:\WINDOWS\cache\Adobe Reader 6.0\ENUBIG\Adobe Reader 6.0.msi' cannot be found.

Ive tried installing a newer version but it just says the same as above and then that the older version (which is the version 6) cannot be removed.

its driving me mad, anyone got any ideas?? :thumbsup:

Thanks

Reinstall version 6.0.1 than uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs.

Re download Adobe Reader 6.0.1 from here

Once that is done download and install Adobe Reader 8.

Read the section on how to manually remove it.

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