I have adobe reader 10.1.2 and in control panel, I cannot remove the adobe patch 9.4.7 that is 215 mb. How do I uninstall old patches?

If I remove current installation, the 9.4.7 patch still exists in the add/remove prgrams. If I try to remove the patch, I get this error:

This patch could not be opened. Please verify that this patch exists, or contact the manufacturer to verify this is a valid application package.


The error occurs even if I try to uninstall the patch first.

Which operating system are you working on?
The 9.4.7 entry is of Acrobat or Reader? Can you please post a screen shot of the ARP?

The patch in ARP is Adobe reader from an older version of adobe.

I have found posts to remove this item from my ARP list via editign registry key editing, but I want to actually uninstall the 200+ mb from my drive.
