Cannot Uninstall Adobe Reader 8.*

by gflash128 / April 2, 2009 9:43 AM PDT

Seems others may have run into this issue but I can't find the solution. Many problems with this version. Now I can't uninstall it in order to upgrade. Error message something like missing installation package. Tried Add/ Remove and redownload, as well as Win install cleaner. Won't print, opens irratically (sp?). Won't uninstall. Any Help?

Dell Dimensiom E520, winxp sp3, 1G ram, hard wired to Netgear router. Cable provider.

You can use REVOUNINSTALLER for uninstalling any software. Revo can uninstall from registry also.It is easily available on net free. Just try to search in google As REVOUNINSTALLER.

funny how the "point something" in the version name suddenly works out your problems.

Thanks again
