    computer running W98 had an older version of acrobat 2.0
    she uninstalled it through an uninstall program not add/remove
    programs. Now her computer locks up if she doesn't boot up in safe mode. What has happened? She was trying to dl 5.0 version of acrobat.

    This is the first thing I came up with

    How do I uninstall Adobe Acrobat 2.0?

    Please do the following to uninstall and delete Acrobat Reader 2.1 components.
    Remove your personal files from the Acroread directory and its subdirectories.
    Delete the Acroread directory.
    Delete the Acroread.ini file from the Windows directory.
    Delete the Acroread directory.

    I will be back with more...............

    Sorry, don't have any good idea's at this hour DS...

    but Cndy... use DS's advice to remove all traces of acrobat (is this the reader or the full acrobat?). Then see if it will boot. If not, use scanreg to revert to a previous registry (from before you uninstalled) and it should boot then. If it boots in regular mode, you could try and install from there if you want.

    well... all I can come up with now.
