After I uninstalled Adobe reader5 there was a message that I had to uninstall
manually a list of files shown. It was too long to write down. Are they
stored somewhere, I hope? Thanks for any help.

Do a find on *.log and see if they are in a uninstall log. The list should show
the paths for each and if I believe correctly, you'll most likely find them in
an Adobe folder not uninstalled. Try a search for Adobe as well.

I tried the *.log. Could not find any that seemed appropriate. I can find
Adobe folders but cannot tell which files are for version 6 which I want to
keep and which are for v5. I hoped to find a log file like you suggested
that listed the set of specific files to manually uninstall.
I am checking on the Adobe Forums also
Thanks to all for your help.

Have you tried the Adobe folder?
(Probably C:\Program Files\Adobe)

Most of my Reader 5 files are in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0
The rest are in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\98
(uninst.dll and uninst.isu)

My own log file that I created when installing V5 shows no files
anywhere else. Adobe did not supply a .log file.
