How do i uninstall adobe reader from my computer i have gone into uninstall but when i click on the remove button it says that it cannot open the file and to go to vendor for advice to see if it's a windows patch.Then it will not uninstall i have tried to download the latest version but it wont let me because of the problem with the one that's already on my machine the problem that i get with the one that's on my machine is that it will not open and keeps freezing the machine when i want to read something that needs that program i/e a PDF document

Try to download another copy of the file click here and do a re-install, it MAY ask if you want to repair, after this it will either work OK or you should be able to uninstall.

reboot in safe mode by pressing F8 repeatedly while you are booting and see what you can do then. Try Add/remove, re-install. look in Adobe reader program folder for a file called uninstall??

Had to write it in as the link changes, you need to change hppt to http of course

First you need to go to Microsoft Support and download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility AKA MSIcuu2.exe Here is the link: hppt://;en-us;290301. Save it to your desktop and get out of the program.

I have XP, so I went to Start, then Search and looked for MSICuu2.exe. When the icon shows up, run the program. After its done its thing, you will get a list of files. Click on Adobe and it will remove it. Then go back into and install 8.0
