Adobe Acrobat

Using Win XP home. Mozilla 1.7.2

Control Panel, ADD/REMOVE, has the following.

Adobe Acrobat-Reader 6.0.2 Update
Adobe Acrobat 5.0
Adobe Atmosphere Player for Acrobat and Adobe Reader
Adobe Download Manager 1.2 (Remove Only)
Adobe Photoshop Album 2.0 Starter Edition
Adobe Reader 6.0.1

I don't play games, I don't edit pictures.

I have no idea what any of the above are used for, and would like to remove anything not really needed.

Appreciate help on what I can safely remove.

Adobe acrobat 5.0 is pdf writing software. If you remove this, you will no longer be able to write pdf files. Hard to beleve you don't use it. I paid $250 for my copy.
