Does anyone have a very reliable way of determining whether Adobe Acrobat is installed or not?

It needs to be consistent for different versions of Windows.

I was thinking about checking for the executible in the Program Files folder, but is that a guaranteed way of determining it?  Is there a way to query Windows to find out if a program is installed, or get a list of installed programs?

Thanks.
