How to uninstall Acrobat Pro XI once past the trial period?

The purchase is not an option at the moment (first of all the business - process can take weeks!) and the "readme" files give instructions that cannot be followed because there is no menu available now that the trial period has expired. Right now, I can't open pdf of all files, even if I have a free Acrobat Reader software installed.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance.


It seems to me that Adobe Reader is not set by default to handle pdf files, but Acrobat is, and so after the trial expires you are not able to view the pdf files.

Please follow the steps below to change the default program for viewing pdf files

Launch Acrobat / Reader.

Click on the button "Edit" on the toolbar and select "Preferences".

A new window would be developed. On the column on the left, Higlight the 'Général' tab and on the right hand side at the bottom there is a button called "select default PDF Handler."

Click the button and select "Adobe Reader" by default for PDF files. Click 'OK' to save the changes.

Alternatively, you can simply right click on any pdf file and select "open with...". ">"Choose default program"and select"Adobe Reader"in the list of programs.

Make sure that check the option at the bottom that says "always use the selected program to open this type of file".

Click 'OK' to save the changes.

To uninstall Acrobat you can simply uninstall in Control Panel > programs or use the Acrobat cleaning tool:
