The file path is C:\Program FIles\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe
If it's not in the list, the installation may have gone wrong at some point.
Instructions for manually removing Reader (v7 and up) are here:
Follow those and then reinstall it.
Dear Expatriated Mac User,
Thank you for your reply to my post in the Forum.
Let me start by saying that as a newcomer to Forums, I can't see how to add
to my original post so I a contacting you directly. I hope you don't mind.
I folowed the link you gave in your message and this takes me to my original
Post, but as I say, I can't see how to add to it.
I couldn't find the file you quoted so I followed the instructions you gave
to remove the program.
This seems to have worked, except for one directory in C:\Program
This has the files
I can't see how to delete these files. When I try to, I get a message
saying that Access is denied. I don't know if this will stop any new
download and installing of a new version of Reader X working.
I have dowloaded a new version of Reader X anyway, and the Adobe Download
Manager tells me that the program is installed.
Now, I try to open the two old .pdf files I referred to in my original Post,
I still get a window 'OpenWith' asking me which program I want to use to
open the file. Reader is still not on the list.
When I brows to the \Adobe directory, there is no sign of a Reader 10 sub
directory, just the Reader 9(2).0 directory with the two files I have
mentioned above in it. As before, I don't understand what is wrong.
Will you help me again please?
In the mean time I will try to find out how to add to my original post in
