Easiest thing ot do is to remove Adove reader 8 and then download and install 9. They are free.

Hi

I suspect you cannot uninstall because of this message, hence the upgrade fails..

First check out the MS cleanup utility it has worked for this before:

If this fails, go through the manual remove as per this kb:

Then reinstall Adobe 9 with admin account (local).

I killed acrotray.exe from Acrobat Writer and I could uninstall the reader.
