Adobe reader 8 - Error 20 upon uninstallation

December 2016


I want to remove Adobe reader 8 from my PC, and upon uninstallation I'm getting the following error message:
"Error 20".


This error is due to some files that haven't been deleted during the uninstallation of Adobe reader.
Download and install CCleaner (Do not install the Yahoo Toolbar):
  • Launch it
  • Go to Tools then uninstalls programs.
  • Select Adobe Reader 8 and click Delete Entry.
