If you cannot remove the program try re-installing it and then uninstalling. Finally use a registry cleaner to remove all traces.
I have used 8.1 on winXP without problems though it keeps trying to update itself automaticaly.

Hello
Just update your reader version to Adobe 10.1.1. It is now on air, and is for free. Get into by google search. You can see the download. It cannot be saved to anywhere, but can be installed by cliking "Run". Will take about half an hour to finish. The installation wizard is there to help you. It will replace your present Adobe-8 by Adobe-10.1.1
I've downloded the same a few while ago. Seems to be very very good than Adobe-9, I was using before. Check it. You will like it and can work with no more problems. OK.

Cannot use reader 8.0,cannot remove it or install 9.0


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.

it sounds like the application that is needed to uninstall the version 8 is corrupted or missing. Try reinstalling version 8 first then uninstall it before loading version 9. If you can reinstall version 8 and it asks you if you want to repair or install, choose install to get all of the files back before uninstalling it again. Always uninstall from add/remove programs. If deleting it from program files instead of uninstalling it correctly it will cause problems.

Users of Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat can fix this flaw by updating to Adobe Reader 8.0. For users that cannot upgrade to version 8, they should upgrade to version 7.9 to protect them from this flaw.
For more information on this security issue, and steps to prevent problems, please visit the following page on Adobe's site.

For website operators, Adobe has also release workarounds to prevent the cross-site scripting vulnerability. You can find more information on these workarounds by visiting the following link.

As an alternative to Adobe Reader, you may want to download the Foxit PDF Reader, a fantastic, fast and free PDF reader program.

Adobe Acrobat 8 error 2711


Sounds menacing but it’s fairly easy to fix.
Heres how to fix it:
  1. Download msicuu2.exe (Windows Install Cleanup Utility) from Microsoft, or by clicking on the file name.
  2. Run msicuu2.exe
  3. You will then get a message asking if you wish to roll back the in progress installation. You do.
  4. Install Adobe Acrobat or Reader 8.

Adobe’s more intrusive way of fixing it:
  1. Click Start>Run, type in regedit then hit enter or press ok.
  2. Back up your registry (not actually mentioned by adobe but a good idea whenever you’re about to make changes to the registry)
  3. Look for Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\Inprogress
    and delete the key if it exists.
  4. Install Adobe Acrobat or Reader 8.
