All you need to do is open a internet browser and go to https://get.adobe.com/reader/

It should automatically know if your using mac or pc.

You can ofcourse always remove the old version of adobe reader from mac) applications and drag to the trash or (windows) go into control panel (add remove programs) and uninstall the older version. Depending on your version it may not actually copy over the old existing adobe reader you currently have and will act as a separate program.
