Uninstall a Broken Adobe Acrobat or Reader Installation

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

The moral to this story is, “If you’re trying to uninstall a program, never go about it by just randomly deleting program files; use the official uninstaller instead.”

I recently had to fix a broken Adobe Reader installation on a Windows PC. The default uninstaller would not remove the program, and a re-installation of the application would not commence either. Something was seriously broken and I was asked to sort it out.
