What is the problem?
The problem is that even after deleting the folder
C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Adobe\Acrobat
according to the instructions for removing Adobe Reader 8, these folders would be left
C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Acrobat
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Adobe\Acrobat
and removal will again be incomplete.
I want to removel Adobe Reader 8 from here, because of danger of virus and old version.
Acrobat and Reader are two completely different programs.
You can just delete these folders (but they will be recreated when you install Reader 9.x).
Claudio, do you mean the folder "Acrobat" is meant to be for Acrobat, and not Reader ?
Do you mean that there would be some other folder something like "Reader" for Reader ?

You can delete this folders.
Thanks brend, so i hope nothing of the adobe reader 8 will be left on my system, if i delete the folders right?
These are actually just the settings for Adobe Reader, not the Reader itself or any of its components.
However, you will probably have plenty of entries in the registry left that will point to these deleted folders.
I agree that it is not very clean of the uninstaller to leave these things behind, but some people may actually want to keep their settings for the next installation, or reinstallation.
I just uninstalled some other software today, and it asked me during the uninstall process if I wanted to keep my settings. I think that would be the correct way to uninstall any software that keeps settings on the disk (and/or the registry).
