I know 4 of the folders ar located in Appdata, Local, Local Low, Roaming and Program Data, those files should be the 4 main locations and any others should not particularly matter and the same with the registry keys again, it shouldn't matter but i would also expect to find Adobe folders contain in program files(x86)

Going from experience with other programs i would suspect that one those folders are removed you should be able to continue with the install

Good luck
I deleted the entire appdata folder & still got the same error message even though half my programs went back to their default stage.

I'm getting pissed about this entire situation in general & think I'm just going to reinstall windows.

maybe this time around itunes will work on win7 64.

But probably not because microsoft & apple are both stupid.

It still shows under control panel>uninstall a program - but when I try to uninstall it it says:

This action is only valid for products that are currently installed.

Any ideas on how to fully delete all files associated with Adobe Acrobat & Reader so I can do a clean install?

I received this error message while trying to do the new install:

I think It's time to give Revo Uninstaller a try.

Oh my goodness no i didnt mean for you to delete the folder called Appdata just the adobe folders inside
But since you've now done a fresh install that wont really matter now.... i hope you ave better luck with the new install
