How to uninstall Adobe Reader 8?

Hello to all,


I tried to uninstall Adobe reader through control panel add / remove programs in order to make the new version 9, a message says: can not open this patch package. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package.

help me... thank you in advance!

Hi,

Try to uninstall with the Windows Installer Clean Up.

Download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility package now .

You must be logged on to Windows with a user account that is a computer administrator to run Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. For more information about how to install and run Windows Installer CleanUp Utility, see the "More Information" section.
