Deleting Acrobat

We have Adobe Acrobat 4.0; 5.0; 6.0 Professional, as well as Adobe Reader 7.0.9.

Can we delete Acrobat 4.0 and 5.0 without harming 6.0 and 7.0.9?

We also have Adobe Atmosphere Player for Acrobat and Adobe Reader. What is this for? Can this be deleted without harm?

Adobe Acrobat Professional is software to create pdf's, Adobe reader is software to read pdf's. They shouldn't interfere.

I think it's quite well possible to delete the two old versions of Acrobat (from Control Panel>Add/Remove) without harming the latest one and the reader. And if they are harmed somehow, just reinstall.

Adobe Atmosfere is a different product (read about it in If you don't use it, it's safe to delete.
