Can't uninstall acrobat x

I recently tried installing Adobe CS 5.5, (CS5 was installed previously) but the install failed with some registry access errors. I tried uninstalling it, but the uninstall failed uninstalling Acrobat Pro X. I then uninstalled all other adobe related programs successfully. Acrobat X still will not uninstal. Does anyone know how to manually uninstall acrobat x? I am very familiar with regedit.

Thanks
Mark

You could try using the MSI cleanup utility from Microsoft then reinstalling.
