Is there a way to remove the most recent update to Adobe Acrobat X without removing the entire software package?  We have an installation where the most recent update is creating a conflict with another piece of software installed on a machine.

Thank you!

Hi Chattie Girl (love it!),
I had the same issue recently – X was causing a problem with another piece of software so I removed it and re-installed 9. All I did was go into Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs (it was XP; if you're on W7, it's Control Panel>Programs and Features). Then just uninstall X. The tricky part was finding 9, which I finally tracked down at:

I don't want to remove all of X though.  it had been working just fine.  The end user installed an update that was downloaded by the auto-updater so I just want to remove the most recent update.

Thanks though.

Are you talking about just the Reader or the full Acrobat package? And what OS?

You still have to remove all of X (I checked installed updates and there is just one item). You can reinstall the base software (available as above or from ftp.adobe.com) and then turn off the Auto Updater.  ... Thinkpads_User

Thanks thinkpads_user.  I did uninstall the entire package, reinstall, and not update it.  I had hoped to be able to uninstall the most recent update, to keep it very close to being fully patched, but deadlines are looming and we needed to resolve the issue.
