I have spent several days - in and out of safe mode, deleting, installing, uninstalling......


I cannot get my computer to reboot without Adobe Acrobat Reader setup running. (5.0)

I have uninstalled it from Windows
I have installed 7.0 and uninstalled 7.0
Anyone have anything...Please? :tazz: ;)

Hi!

I used program uninstall, then I used uninstall from jv16 Power Tools, I deleted it from the startup menu......I tried a lot of things. When it asked where to install it, I changed the directory - didn't matter. It installed in the different directory but still couldn't budge the #$#@! file that instructs the setup at start! :tazz:

Okay! I lika your stuff! :help:

I tried unclicking the adobe setup - no dice.
I tried unclicking everything and then reclicking everything but...no dice.
Tried it on and off safe mode.

I had too many "experts" dicking around in here and it looks like a circus for monkeys ;) ;) :tazz:

ok lets see if we can find the exe file
Start>search>all files and folders type in acroreader5 and click on search
if it finds this then delete it. if it does not find it then search for acrobat.
