We cannot find Adobe Acrobat Reader 5x under "Programs"
yet a Secunia Scan shows the Reader is active.
We checked the Registry. Cannot find under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr ent Version\uninstall\AdobeAcrobat.as mentioned in Uninstalling Acrobat Reader 5x when checking support.
Does this mean the program is corrupted? If so how do we correct???
We want to uninstall Adobe Reader 5 x

Can any one help Help????

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, please follow these guidelines using the
ADVANCED interface:
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
* Click on the + sign of the programme to “expand’ it.
* Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file.
* Remember the installation path and close down the menu.
* Click Open Folder and locate the detected file.
Would also think twice about putting email address for all to see-spammers love it.

Regards, wr

Strange-if using PSI try & download & reinstall from here: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

Never personally had this happen but maybe some of the files were corrupted during the download/install process.

So, did you or didn't you get adobe reader out of your system, bigfish?
So what reader are we actually talking about, surely your not saying version 5.0?
Here is an exceptional add/remove program. It is great at finding left over and incomplete files left in registry and program files.
http://www.revouninstaller.com
If U want a general updater to compliment Secunia a link is here:

http://www.filehippo.com

It is fast and it takes you right to the proper download.
Seeing as how you did go to registry with negative results I am sure you also checked program files
It might be possible to remove all of acrobat from system add/remove -shut down reboot and then reinstall acrobat from Adobe .com and it might remove on the install and initializing of the new version 9.1
So wr you really think it has to do with a third party install? What do you think about it somehow being on one of his back-up drives?
Guessing too Just out of curiosity what browser are you using bigfish

Hey puget 1-I'm leaning toward 3rd party install. But in Cyberworld anything is possible. I've never had any problem getting to Advance mode so don't understand what the problem is there. Maybe we'll get a post letting us know if they finally got into the Advance mode to track down the path. Hard to second guess without further info. Anyhow hope you have a nice weekend.
BTW agree w/ Revo & File Hippo-I also have both
Cheers, wr

I know what you mean. I went from the premise that he did not get to Advance and that it was not third party install. I have a haunch that it may be his browser holding him out. Now, with all the security features that are included with the various browsers like cookie and script controls,if you forget to disable them ,they can hold you out from installs and the like. Have a good week-end to you and happy cyber luck!
