editing on untagged scanned image - Adobe Acrobat Windows

I want to delete, or 'cover' text in a scanned image (untagged, most basic type) adobe acrobat professional v.6 for privacy reasons before saving and resending the pdf file. Is there an easy way to do this?...

    There are lots of ways which might seem to do it, involving covering
    things up. DO NOT attempt any of these, because what you cover can be
    uncovered in seconds. This is a common mistake and has been
    embarrassing to both companies and governments.

    For actual security deletions I can only recommend Redax

    There is a way to do it, if you have an image editor and Acro 6 Pro (you didn't specify):

    1. Select the TouchUp Object tool (Tools > Advanced Editing > TouchUp Object)
    2. Click on the image to select it.
    3. Right click the image and choose "edit image". This will open the image in an image editor (e.g. Photoshop)
    4. Use the Eraser tool to remove the unwanted information.
    5. Save and close the file in the image editor.
    6. When you return to Acrobat, your change will have taken effect.

    Wash, rinse, repeat for each page you need to modify.
