    I am unable to remove Adobe 7.0.1 from the system.

  • grays332 Jul 23, 2008

    Please forgive me.
    I am trying to eliminate Adobe 7.0.1, as it is not functioning correctly, and causing other problems.
    I cannot see any documents that would have me jump to Adobe Reader 8. It will not even install.

    The quotes that I posted are what showed on the screen, as I tried to use Adobe.

    Windows 2000 Professional

  • grays332 Jul 23, 2008

    The assistance is insufficient.

  • grays332 Jul 23, 2008

    I did not understand what I was to copy and paste.
    I did more investigating of the computer, and here are some more facts.
    When I pulled up 'Search', the Adobe 7.0 entries did not work. There was no entry for Adobe 9.0, nor for Adobe Reader 8. So, something is stopping them.

    When I tried to currently install Adobe Reader 9, the flag stated ' Error 1714. The older version of Adobe Reader 9 cannot be removed.'

    Another flag stated: 'The feature you are tring to use is on a network resource that is unabailable'.

    Another: ' the path C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Setup Files\RdrBig\ENU\Adobe Reader 7.0 msi - cannot be found.'

    Another: 'Fatal Error: Acrobat failed to load its Core DLL'.

    I hope this additional information will be of positive support.

    Thank you.

  • grays332 Jul 23, 2008

    Solutions from Adobe 1 through 4 did not help the errors.
    Could not find xMsicuu2.exe - perhaps I did not enter with correct phrase (?).

    Regarding Msisuu: the following showed after I ran the Windows Unstable Clean Up: 'Invalid Property array index. Run-time eror 381.'

    Ran Windows Instable Clean Up.
    On 'Add/Remove Programs' Adobe 7.0 was no longer there :).

  • grays332 Jul 24, 2008

    I have not yet pursued your last help ideas, because I now have the problem that I have no Microsoft Office Programs.

    The computer states they have not been installed.

    Please help. This is very serious.
    Remember, I did use the CCleaner and the
    Microsoft Windows Installer Clean Up utility

    Thanks.

  • grays332 Jul 25, 2008

    PLEASE - forget the Adobe Problem.

    All of a sudden, I do not have Microsoft Office, nor iTunes.

    Please tell me there is a way to undo whatever was done.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    These are serious.

Press start menu button.
Go to All Programs/Acessories/System tools/System restore.
Perform system restore to a date before you performed Acrobat installation.

See Adobe's instructions: Manually remove Adobe Reader (7.x on Windows)

When the uninstaller file is corrupt or malformed, it can't perform these steps programatically. So you get to perform them manually! (Fun!)

It's not that hard, actually. Most if it is just some cmd line instructions. Just follow the steps in order and it will finally be gone from your system.

Good Luck!

-- If the error is generated by the current version of Acrobat or Adobe Reader:

1. Remove all updates that do not generate an error message.

2. Choose Start > Program > Windows Install Clean Up to start the Windows Install Clean Up utility.

3. Select the current version of Acrobat or Adobe Reader and choose Remove.

4. Reinstall the current version of Acrobat or Adobe Reader.

5. Apply any updates.

-- If the error is generated when an earlier version of Acrobat orAdobe Reader prevents the installation of the current version ofAcrobat or Adobe Reader:

Important: These steps require the installation media and serial number for both versions of Acrobat.

1. Remove all updates that do not generate an error message.

2. Choose Start > Program > Windows Install Clean Up to start the Windows Install Clean Up utility.

3. Select the previous version of the application and choose Remove.

4. Re-install the previous version of the application.

5. Remove the previous version of Acrobat or Adobe Reader using Add/Remove Programs, and then restart your computer.

Note: If the previous version generates another error message upon removal, refer to the documentation on that issue.

You will need to go into the program file in the C drive and delete the Adobe manually. Empty the recycling bin and reboot. Then do a search from the start menu, all files and folders, keyword Adobe. If it finds anything write down the path to where it's located, then go in and delete it, empty the bin, and reboot. Repeat the process until the search doesn't find anything pertaining to Adobe, then install the new Adobe. You might also try a cleaning program to clean out any left overs in the registry or unused file extensions. CCleaner is a decent cleaner and can be found at filehippo.com

    The CCleaner wouldn't remove your office program, unless you ran the unistaller. Try a system restore to get the office back. if you can't get it back then I'm afraid you'll have to reinstall it.

    To get 7 out you will need to reinstall it

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 23, 2008

    You need to reinstall 7 to fix the missing files before you can sucessfully uninstall it :(

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 25, 2008

    Sir your problem is occuring because your registery entries are messup up, loosing other progrmas means that it is getting more so by what ever you are attempting. You can try to reinistall the applications but chances are it will not. Cause the files are there but just not in the registery. What you can try Reinstall the programs that you have lost , and to uninstall the adobe you have to install it over it self then uninstall it this may be the only way to correct the registery..



    WARNING DO NOT USE A REGISTERY UTILITY CAUSE IOT WILL

    1.) delet the redundants thats needed

    2.) remove entrys for applicatins that are installed.



    IUf you have done this then i am very seorry but to inform you that you will have no choice but to format and do a clean install of windows..

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jul 25, 2008

    If it was done from a system restore

    you can undo the restore



    start>all programs>accesories>system tools>restore system



    follow the steps ton the screen to undo the restore..



    If the restore fails means that the registery is formulative and fargmented you will need to format.

Need to delete Adobe Reader 7.0.9 so I can reinstall latest Versi


I was able to remove Adobe 7.0.9 by getting feed back from "question to google crowd"!
1. I had to download a program that removed the "setup" from the Adobe 7.0.9 on my computer.
2.I then downloaded Adobe 8.1 (with the understanding that since "7.0.9" now had no setup instructions" there would be no problem with the "8.1" download) -
3.Once "8.1" was downloaded I went to "ADD/REMOVE" and removed "7.0.9" - this time it worked just fine - no message that I had to find a folder with "7.0.9" .
4.After removing "7.0.9" I removed "8.1" with the ADD/REMOVE program;
5.All Adobe was removed from the computer..I then downloaded ADOBE 9 from Adobe's website.
6.I went to my portfolio to check it out and the pages came up without a hitch.
Goodluck to those who have had a similar problem.

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.

Save the file in the downloads folder you just created.
Open AdbeRdr90_en_US.exe in the downloads folder you just created.

GO TO ADOBE.COM AND DOWNLOAD THE UNINSTALLER FOR YOUR VERSION TO YOUR DESKTOP.OPEN THE UNINSTALLER ICON ON YOUR DESKTOP.YOU WILL THEN BE ABLE TO REMOVE ALL INSTANCES OF THE SOFTWARE.IF YOU STILL CANT GET 7.0 REMOVED THAN IT IS BEING USED BY ANOTHER APP ON THE PC AND THATS WHEN THINGS GET A LITTLE DICY.YOU WILL NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT OTHER APP IS SHARING THE SOFTWARE.THE KEY IS TO GET WHATEVER PROGRAM ON YOUR COMPUTER THAT IS RUNNING 7.0 TURNED OFF.ADOBE NEEDS TO NOT BE RUNNING TO BE ABLE TO BE UNINSTALLED.BUT,I THINK THE UNINSTALLER SHOULD DO THE TRICK.GOOD LUCK.

Adobe installation


Hooray! Found the solution. Seems the problem is you must have the Adobe Reader 7.0.9 installer on your system to be able to install 8.1.1. You can d/l version 7.0.9 (which includes the installer) here:
http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/read...llversions.html
Install the whole thing, then you should be able to install your 8.1.1, which will remove the 7.0.9 version in the process, but will use its installer.
