3: Attempt to repair Acrobat from the installation disc or cached installer files.

To repair Acrobat:

Sir, use the Microsoft Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to remove it.

Oddly enough, you may find that updating the version 8.0 you have to 8.x will then allow you to remove it (or it will work correctly) can you open the reader manually in the programs list? if so open it, then go to help and check for updates. apply the updates. If they work you should be in good shape.
