Removing unwanted programs/malware


Many computer problems can be fixed by the user simply by doing a web search with search terms related to the specific issue.

Sometimes you may have an unwanted program that downloaded along with something else you actually intended to install and trying to remove it via "add/remove programs" in Control Panel doesn't help.

Go to your preferred search engine (I prefer Bing) and type in "how do I remove" followed by the program/malware you want to get rid of.

Always be as specific as possible with the search terms you use so that you will be more likely to get the best results.

If at all possible, avoid downloading anything that says it will remove the issue as often these will be adware/malware as well. Stick to known programs for removal of Malware such as MalwareBytes Free Anti Malware Internet Security Software and

Adobe acrobat writer version 5 is requried for installation purpose


Acrobat is up to version 9 now, I believe. If you don't have Adobe reader or Acrobat installed on your computer, I suspect the latest one will allow you to use the software utilities as well as an older one. It kind of depends on your operating system. If you're still using an old OS, you may have to search the web for a download of an older Acrobat, which I suspect will be hard to find, as Adobe is pretty firmly in control of their downloads.
In any event, search here first:
http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/
If your system meets the requirements for installing the latest acrobat, do so, and then try to run your other software.
If you have an further questions or issues, please feel free to follow up. I'll be happy to assist you.

I deleted some programs off of my computer that I wasn't using. Acrobat/Adobe were one of them.


Do a search for 'all files and folders' - search for both Company Name and then Program Name, (such as Webroot and Spysweeper, or Adobe and Photoshop) with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you uninstall any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)

Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do all the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling programs.
