Adobe recommends that you use the Adobe Reader 7.0 uninstaller in the Add/Remove Programs utility in Windows to remove Adobe Reader 7.0 from the computer. Occasionally, however, damaged files or a partial installation can prevent the Adobe Reader 7.0 uninstaller from working correctly. They can also cause the uninstaller to leave files or empty application folders on the system after the removal is performed. You could also notice Adobe Reader 7.0 missing from the Add/Remove Programs list. Or, you could find that the installer only displays the Repair and Remove options when you try to install Adobe Reader 7.0.
Manually removing Adobe Reader 7.0 ensures that all files and folders are removed.
These instructions are for removing Adobe Reader 7.0. If you have other versions of Adobe applications installed, remove only the files below that relate to Adobe Reader 7.0. These steps also remove any extra content (for example, Goodies or Functional Content) installed with Adobe Reader 7.0. If you reinstall Adobe Reader 7.0, reinstall its extra content as well.
