Hm. Well, I guess I should have rechecked that web page's subsequents! I apologize. I trusted an Adobe website to link properly to Adobe stuff (they would never charge for use of their uninstaller, I really don't think.) Let me check on this...
... OK, the URL I gave you is probably somewhat bogus. I will not use it again! The uninstaller software I was thinking of was for Adobe Flash Player (plug-in) not Adobe Reader, I was hurried. If it solved your problem, good, but this is the real McCoy, just to put it on record:http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html?promoid=DTEGO
where I just tested downloading the uninstall_flash_player.exe file, and it completed quickly and properly without demanding any charge of me, nor involving any Chinese co. I clicked on the link for
"Download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller:
(This link is arrived at properly by a search from within Adobe.com's web pages for Adobe Reader, rather than from a general search engine like Google.)
(Note the URL address of the link to download is
DANGEROUS URL REMOVED )
I stand corrected; this sort of thing confirms me in my tendency to a policy of testing a download by doing it myself before recommending it.
But ultimately, I am glad your problem is fixed. By all means dispute that c.c. charge! Good wishes for the future.
