Currently Being ModeratedNov 26, 2006 1:44 PM (in response to baltwo)It's not as simple as trashing Reader. The Reader installer puts stuff all over that could potentially interfere with your other programs. One item prevents Safari from using the Preview engine to display online PDFs. Even if you trash Reader this file will remain. Delete it manually:

As already alluded to..there is no procedure other than trashing the app. and any related files.
If you are still unsure, you should post your question on the Adobe discussion boards: http://www.adobe.com/go/gntraysupp_forumshome15 Powerbook 1.67Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.7)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 26, 2006 7:33 PM (in response to Templeton Peck)OK, I forgot one item: /Library/Internet Plug-ins/AdobePDFViewer.plugin. Trash that in addition to the app and you should be good to go. I don't recall anything else Reader installs, unlike other Adobe apps.G4 450 MP Gigabit, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 10, 2006 7:00 PM (in response to ridergroov)I have found this procedure (linked below) to work very well for me. Before you begin, however, open the Acrobat Reader preferences and uncheck the option to display PDF in browser using Adobe Reader under the "Internet" category. I hope this helps.
