I am trying to install Adobe Acrobat 6 and it says I already have a copy of Acrobat 5 (which is true). When I go to Add/Remove Programs Acrobat 5 is not listed. I've look for an unistall file inside the Acrobat 5 folder but it's not there.

Thanks for any help!

Hello knate5000 and welcome to G2G!

What I would do is put the Acrobat 5 CD in start the setup program and choose the remove option. If if didn't have a remove option in the setup program then I'd install it again and then remove it via add/remove programs.

Another thing to try would be to manually delete the Acrobat folder and clean up the registry with a registry cleaner like CCleaner.
