    Hey guys,
    I'm trying to get rid of Adobe Reader X because when it starts, it says it can't load a core .dll, i tried repairing it, nothing happened.
    So then I used Revo Uninstaller Pro to uninstall it, here's what i got:
    Adobe X Reader Installation Information
    Error 1316. A network error occured while attempting
    to read from a file
    C:\Windows\Installer\AcroRead.msi

    [OK]

    I don't know what to do, when i click OK it reverts the changes and goes back.

    Tried Repair function, same thing.
    Couldn't I just remove the files w/ Revo and then remove the Adobe stuff, then re-install Adobe again?

    use taskmgr, make sure all ADOBE processes are not running then try to uninstall.
