Adobe Reader X will not run and Cannot be unistalled

Oct 29, 2011 12:07 AM

I am running Windows XP on my laptop and I recently allowed Adobe to update to Adobe Reader X.  I immediately encountered the problem of not being able to open PDF documents and then Reader X just stopped working all together.

Now I can not uninstall it or reload any older version at all.  In all cases I get an error message stating that "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable" and then askes for the location of the file AcroRead.msi.  This file does not exist anywhere on my laptop.

Any idea how I can remove Adobe reader from this machine?  I have tried all of the manual removal suggestions and always end up with the above mentioned problem.
