Yes, you can delete what you do not need or want.
I downloaded (5 times) Adobe Reader 9. At 98.7% of the installation process, I get this error message.."The feature you are tying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable."
"Click OK again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package "AdbRdr812_en_us.msi" in the box below.
I have no idea where this file may be, and fully expect Adobe to be able to find its own files!
Since attempting to download Reader 9. I have lost the ability to read .pdf files online, with the error message Can not launch Acrobat".
After Acrobat -says- it's installed itself, I get this error message...
"Error 1714.The older version of Adobe Reader 9 cannot be removed.
Contact your technical support group."
I am my only technical support group, and really really don't care for this rigamarole, losing "features" I had.
What is going on?
I have been able to downlaod with ease. I don't click ok to the ADOBE DLM Active X. Instead I click to download
My questions are:
1) why is this download program so poorly structured it doesn't include everything it must have, as all previous programs of its type have,
2) why did it (apparently) wipe out an operational system?
Doing a search on my system the required "AdbRdr812_en_us.msi" does not exist!
It should be included in the download!
All I want is the reader.
No AIR anything, and yet that comes bundled with the download.
I encountered problem that Windows came up in firefox when I was Download - Extraction - Installation of Adobe Reader 8.1 software. It said "getPlus: Error Cant retrieve essential parameter!" This came up multiple times and firefox would freeze up for a few seconds. Then I got the error message/whatever for firefox, where it says send error report or no and then obviously firefox had to close. I searched on google for this error message and I didn't come up with anything about this error message. The only very resent change is upgrading adobe which was yesterday
Mine is giving me the 1714 error also.... I tried to uninstall all previous versions and it won't let me uninstall 7.0.5 and an update. Now I can't even find the older versions to reinstall so I at least can read my exsisting pdf files. I went to D/L a manual and it locked up a new IE screen til it said "this website is unavailable" when it timed out I presume. I too, only want reader, they can keep the other garbage. Adobe Acrobat/etc kept coming up when I fired up my computer at the start of a session for some strange reason.
Fixed it from another post here. Copied from post: Download and run the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility. HTH.
I fixed my problem by doing some of the procedures listed here..
I downloaded the Windows uninstaller thing, and ran it.
I deleted the 812 installer. And Abode AIR.
Then re-ran the 812 installer. That worked, so I stopped there.
I doubt I'll be using any more "updates" from Adobe.
Boys, not sure your posts answered my questions

The very first post answered your main question. Yes, you can remove the extra apps.
Answers to your questions:
3. Keep Reader, uninstall (not delete) the rest.
I could uninstall acrobat.com, adobe air, and getplus for adobe
But I could only delete adobe reader9 installer as it was a folder on my desk top.
Now I also notice a file labeled as Updater6
located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Updater6
the updater 6 files contains the following
AdobeUpdater security certificate
Adobe Update security certificate
Can this file Adobe_Updater.exe be deleted? can the whole updater 6 folder be deleted? It doesn't show up in the programs, so I can't "uninstall" it
Trying everything, need help:

Then immediately get this error message:
