deinstalling Adobe

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

In response to a previous question I was told to deinstall Adobe Reader and
install a new version. I apologize for all this; it's new to me. In
Add/Remove Programs I get:

Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0.2 update
" " " 6.0.3 uupdate
" Download Manager 1.2 (Remove Only)
" Reader 6.01

Do I deinstall all those? I assume I don't do anything with Photoshop. And
then do I go to an Adobe site? Or if I just try to open a pdf document will
I automatically be taken there?

    I assume you are attempting to upgrade from Adobe reader 6.1 to version 7.0?
    To uninstall version 6.01 remove the following files Adobe Acrobat reader
    6.01; Adobe acrobat reader update 6.02 and adobe acrobat reader update 6.03.
    Leave the download manager alone. This is because the download manager will
    be used to download version 7.0
    To download version 7.0 you will need to go to the Adobe web site and
    download it from there. As an alternative you might just check any recent pc
    magazine cover cd's. You might find one of the mags have included Adobe
    reader 7.0 on their cover disk, in which case you will have no need to
    download it from adobe, you can straight install it from the mag's cover
    disk.
