    If you have not upgraded to version 6 try downloading and installing it. I is wonderful and it should fix the problem.

    An un-install should be done first before re-installing it.

    You should be able to remove the previous adobe using this:

    Make sure you backup the registry before editing.
    Select Start > Run

    In the Open: line type regedit and press Enter.

    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

    The Add/Remove Programs list is built from the keys listed beneath the Uninstall folder.

    Locate the key for the program that has been uninstalled, right click the key and click Delete.

    Be very careful. Once the key has been deleted it's impossible to use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall if you make an incorrect selection
