I've tried the solutions on both those links, and this one as well (http://kb.adobe.com/selfservic.....;sliceId=1) which involves messing with the registry Permissions. I've also tried downloading the ACL utility and that hasn't done anything either, even after restarting. None of those solutions seem to be working.
To clear things up: I tried uninstalling Adobe Reader, and re-installing. When attempting to re-install was the first time I came across this error. After numerous tries, I thought I'd system restore to BEFORE I uninstalled Reader. Now technically, Reader is installed, but now when I attempt to UNinstall, I encounter the same error.
As for the other programs, I didn't know if you wanted Acrobat programs or Adobe or if it's the same thing. My Add/Remove programs list says:
- Adobe Flash Player ActiveX
- Adobe Photoshop 7.0
- Adobe Reader 8.1.2
- Adobe Shockwave player
Hope this clarifies things.
