Go to http://www.adobe.com/

In their search bar at the top right of the screen enter

uninstall adobe reader 7

This is the only link it provided about that version :


and the information provided is rather involved - in my opinion, it's useless. Adobe should provide an uninstaller that is independent of the Windows "Install/Remove" program system.

(Note: Adobe does have an uninstaller for their Flash player, so there is no reason they cannot have a uninstaller for their Reader program.)

I tried another search in Adobe's website with the phrase

Error 1714 adobe reader

and found this link :


where they say that some registry cleaners might remove information that the uninstall routines need to be able to perform uninstallation.

This looks like better information, but there are several solutions, and it seems that reinstalling Adobe Reader from its CD or original downloaded file will put the uninstall program where it needs to be to correctly perform the full uninstall.

And do not run any registry cleaners, like ccleaner, etc., until you have fully uninstalled Adober Reader.

There is a "Did this resolve your problem" box on that page, perhaps you could type in a description of your problem, include your email, and see if they ever send any useful information back to you.

Include your computer manufacturer and model, the Windows version, and the error messages you are seeing when you attempt the uninstall or a new install.

Good luck !

Solution 1: Use the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller to remove previous versions of Flash Player.

Follow the instructions in How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control (tn14157) to download and run the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller.

Run the Adobe Creative Suite 4 or Point Product installation again.

Solution 2: Manually remove the Flash Player product code that is preventing the installation.

Important:  The steps below assist you in manually deleting the most common installer entries that cause this error message.  The key reference is for Adobe Flash Player.


The Administrators group listed below is the default local administrative group for Windows XP and Vista.


Disclaimer: This procedure involves editing the Windows registry. Adobe doesn't provide support for editing the registry, which contains critical system and application information. Make sure to back up the registry before editing it. For more information about the registry, see the Windows documentation or contact Microsoft.
