Check the net to see if there is a removal tool for Adobe,
if not ,it can be done in the registry but you need to be very careful, it is not for the faint hearted.

do not use the quotation marks shown ,when typing.

  • go to start button select "run",
  • type "regedit" in box
  • click on "edit"
  • then "find"
  • type in "Adobe"
  • any line with adobe in it will be highlighted
  • check the line before hitting delete key
  • then hit enter(ok) to confirm delete
  • hit F3 to continue search
  • then follow the same procedure to the end
continue this till you get to the end of the registry it may take a long time.

again i stress you have to be very careful when playing around in the registry as it can give you a real headache if you delete something you should not have,even requiring you to re install windows

good luck
Terry

My Adobe reader 8.1.1 will not open. I get error message that the patch package file is damaged and cannot be fixed. I am unable to uninstall Adobe Reader 8.1.1 and cannot Install 8.1.2 nor any patches....


Hello there.
This problem happens often. Please try the following steps to resolve the issue.

1) Restart your computer.
2) When the machine first starts again it show some white text on a black screen, before the Windows logo appears. Gentyl tap the F8 key repeatedly _before_ you see the windows logo until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
3. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.

Now that you're in your computer in Safe Mode, go to your Control Panel and select Add/Remove Programs and chose Adobe Reader 8, which should uninstall properly now.

Hope this helps.

Where could i download macromedia flash 8 for free using windows 7 64 bit


As per Adobe Macromedia Flash 8 is not compatible with any Windows beyond XP
First, uninstall Macromedia Flash 8
confirm your version of IE8 is 32 bit, as Flash only works properly with IE 32bit
If your version of IE8 is 64bit, you have to download the 32bit version from MS site.
uninstall IE and install IE 32 bit,
support links for Adobe Flash 10 are at the below address.

I have windows xp on my computer and I can't uninstall adobe 9.1.1, how can I get it off my computer?


Due to recent enhancements to the Adobe Flash Player installers, you can now remove the player only by using the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller. To remove Flash Player, simply download and run the appropriate uninstaller for your system using the steps below.
  1. Download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller:
  2. Save the file to your system, choosing a location where you can find it (for example, your desktop). Macintosh users may need to open or unstuff the .hqx file.
  3. Quit ALL running applications, including all Internet Explorer or other browser windows, AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, or other Messengers. Check the Windows system tray carefully to make certain no applications are still in memory which might possibly use Flash Player.
  4. Run the uninstaller. This will remove Adobe Flash Player from all browsers on the system.
Note: The uninstaller cannot remove files currently in use.
If you have any instances of the player open in your web browsers, instant messaging clients, stand-alone SWFs, or projectors, then the uninstaller will complete but some files may not be deleted. If this occurs, then close all of your applications and run the uninstaller again to ensure that all files are removed.
Note: Internet Explorer users may have to reboot to clear all uninstalled Flash Player ActiveX control files. If you're not certain, select the "Show Details" button in the Flash Player uninstaller. If there are any log lines that begin with "Delete on Reboot..." then you'll need to reboot BEFORE running the Flash Player installer again.
