I have downloaded Adobe Reader 7. I still have Adobe Acrobat 4 installed. Should I uninstall it or doesn't it matter. Is there any difference between Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat and if so,what is it

It doesn't really matter unless you need the disk space. Version 7 is lots faster at loading pdfs within a browser.

oh, sorry, just realised you said Adobe Acrobat - I'm assuming you mean the full software, not just the reader?

Keep Adobe Acrobat!

Adobe Reader is just what the name implies - just a reader. You cannot create or modify pdf files like you can in Adobe Acrobat.

As above, it makes little difference but in general I do uninstall one before installing a later version - something I read somewhere once upon a time.

Time I read what I was looking at...
