how can I remove all folders and files of adobe acrobat 7 & 8? i used add/remove, but it left many files, and I cannot remove them by "delete". And now i cannot even restore Adobe Acrobat 7 to my computer. Is there any uninstaller that will remove everything of Adobe acrobat?
Thanks

Did you recently remove them? if so, you can restore your machine to a date before you uninstalled them.

1. Click Start, Programs, and then Accessories
2. Click System Tools and open System Restore
3. In the System Restore window, select Restore my computer to an earlier time and click Next and follow the steps to restore your computer to an earlier date.

thanks, coachwife6
i have restored to a\the date before I tried to uninstall -- actually, before I installed adobe acrobat 8 (I already had acrobat 7).
Now how do I go about removing everything, EVERYTHING from both 7 & 8??
Thanks
Paul

I still see the folder Acrobat 8 and I cannot remove it by "delete" and there is nothing in the add/rmeove for acrobat 8. (Only for adobe creative suite 2 which I would also like to uninstall) .
Thanks for advice

Hey Paul:

Why do you want to remove it? Did you try rebooting into safe mode and navigating to it vis Explorer and deleting it that way?
