I've run into this problem before with Adobe updaters. Generally, as in this time, an error message that the existing version, 9.5.1, has been modified. I would uninstall Reader 9 and start from scratch but there's no uninstaller and, as far as I can see, no current version of the Reader 9 app available on the


Any ideas?


(And yes, I have Reader 10 but I don't like it.)

    You may want to navigate the Adobe FTP site to find the appropriate installer / update for Mac OS.

    Hi Duncanthlo,


    It is better to install latest Major version of Reader i.e. 10.1.4 from  . It has got all latest fixes and features.


    But if you still want to install Adobe Reader 9.4.0 after uninstalling Reader 9.5.1, delete the following things:


    1. Under Application, the whole 'Adobe Reader 9' folder.

    2. /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/AdobePDFViewer.plugin

    3. /Library/Prefernces/com.adobe.acrobat.pdfviewer.plist

    4. ~/Library/Prefernces/com.adobe.Reader_x86_9.0.plist

    5. ~/Library/Prefernces/
