Uninstalling Acrobat 7 - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

I have just purchased Adobe Creative suite 2 premiun which contains Acrobat 8 professional software. It says Adobe recommends uninstalling any previous versions of Acrobat but I have no ide how to do that ... I thought you only needed to uninstall on windows operating systems. Anyone know how this is done?...

    Cally, I am just doing ours now Acrobat 8 requires OSX.4.3 or above if you have this then just follow the instructions leaflet. If you V7 installed then there should be an un-installer in Acrobat's application folder. In my case V6 has no un-installer so just moving this folder to desktop was ok.

    There is an uninstaller in the Acrobat folder. It is a good idea to
    uninstall because Acrobat changes other things in the system (like
    printer drivers and Safari); just deleting a folder won't clean that
    up.

    I just installed Acrobat8 but didn't un-install Acrobat7 since I'd like to carry on using PitStop with it. Do you any specific problems that I'm going to run into?

    Shouldn't be any problems. That's more or less a Windows thing.

    I'm afraid I can't get over in Feb. It would be nice to meet you face to face.

    I'm having my summer holiday early this year.

    I had Reader 7 on iMac with OS 10.4, I tried to manually uninstall it with instructions on abode site. What headache. After removing files & folders I thought were part of it, I finally gave up and installed v. 8. It installed and works. However, it had that rediculous login item I have no use for and followed directions to remove it permanantly by editing the self heal file. It seems to be gone now.

    But frankly I do not want this bloatware on my machine anymore. I use Preview and Pathfinder to read PDF's just fine.

    What would be best way to delete v. 8 and any possible leftovers from v. 7. I have no uninstallers. Is there someplace I can download adobe uninstallers.
