Question about HP Computers & Internet
I downloaded the latest Adobe Reader update but haven't installed it yet. Now I want to remove it entirely from my pc without installing it because I now know that it was also going to install some McAfee virus protection software along with the download. I keep getting prompts to install it. I have a nearly new 64 bit HP pc with factory Windows Home Premium 7. I am running the latest Firefox browser. How do I fix this? Thanks, Phil
If you have downloaded the Adobe Reader software using Firefox browser, the installation file is stored in the Downloads folder of the Firefox broser.
To open the folder and delete the file, click on the Tools menu in the Firefox window, then select Downloads. Then you will find a file named "AdbeRdr930_en_US.exe". Right-click on this file and select "Open Containing folder" Then locate the file in that folder, right-click on the file and select Delete.
Hope this solves your problem. For more help and clarifications, please feel free to reply to this post.
