Adobe Acrobat 7 is refusing to uninstall. So, following advice on a discussion board, I downloaded the Microsoft Windows Installer CleanUp, which is designed to remove the Windows installer configuration information about selected products that may be confusing the uninstall process.
When I try to install the the Microsoft Windows Installer CleanUp, I get the following messages (click on them to see them full size).
Oh ho ho ho. I laugh, knowing that I’m about to lose another hour of my life. O ho ho ho.
PS: I gave up on trying to uninstall Adobe Acrobat. When I checked the registry, there were over 1,500 references to it. So, I instead installed a free PDF viewer from Foxit Software and associated PDF files with it. I’ve just played around with it a little bit, but so far it seems terrific. I even filled in an IRS form with it. (There’s a pay version also that has some extra spiffy features.)
