    Control Panel\Add\Remove programs.
    Find the Adobe entry click it. Click the support link, and you
    should be able to Repair it.

    Sorry Tab. It worked OK for me on XP, altho` it was 6 I
    tried it with.
    If 7 won`t clear with Add\Remove, then you might have to
    do it the hard way.
    ie. Search all instances of Adobe, and delete them.
    Then do the same in the Registry.
    Assuming you have no other Adobe products on board.

    Thanks beenthere .Have tried to get rid of all Adobe but got to the stage
    where access to files were denied so gave up and Im not too sure about
    touching anything in Registry.I did find the Reader there and there is an
    entry that says Repair reader but I dont know how to tackle that.

  6. Go here scroll down and follow the steps under Manually remove Adobe
    Reader. Just skip any parts that you may have already completed. Replace
    the version # 6.0.2 with your corrupted versions number.
