Anybody know how to uninstall a computer program that didn't properly
install in the first place? I've been trying to uninstall Adobe AIR, because it did not install correctly. But apparently part of the program that didn't install was the driver that allows for uninstalling it. I'm at a loss as to what to do. Anyone have any ideas on what I could try to get rid of it?

3. Did it come with your Adobe reader installation?
I hate the crap they pack into their apps. Adobe.com, Adobe Air, what I've been doing is installing OLD Adobe 6 for reading purposes unless the apps (from GM) REQUIRE 9, and even then I use a stripped install package so Air and .com aren't installed.

4. Well, here's what I do when that happens
I manually uninstall the program by removing all the program and data folders, reboot and then run a registry cleaning program like CCleaner (which you can get for free) to remove registry entries. That should do it.
