we are pushing Adobe 9 pro through group policy. For some reason, one of the windows 7 PC didn't pick it up. When I try to install it manually using msiexec command. It installs fine. But when I restart the computer adobe acrobat 9 pro is uninstalled through policy. Is there any way I can edit the registry or something to make it work?

Are you pushing it through a package in Group Policy or through a script?  I'm sure you already know this but we will have to find out what is triggering the uninstall.  If passed through script then please post the script.  If passed through a package, please post what package you use or where you got the install from.

If you take the install off Group Policy, does it keep it after you have manually installed?  Just troubleshooting, not a solution.

Do you have it setup to install to everyone or just a group of users. And if it is just a a group of users is that computer part of that group. The reason I say that is cause if you have set the installaion to uninstall if no longer part of the group then it will uninstall it should be. Also do a gpresult to make sure that it is getting the policy.

You should be Assigning it to the computer.  Group the computers you want it on into a Security group and use Filtering on the GPO by removing Authenticated Users and adding your new Security Group - this will only install on those computers then.
