Double Clicking on the actual exe. I get the message Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe". Make sure you typed the name correctly and try again.

That is where the exe is.

Deleting directories or files of installed applications generally messes up the entire operating system, so NEVER EVER DO THIS! 

 

If an application suddenly stops running you should check if there's a recent restore point in Windows where it's still working.

Thank you for your help. I deleted all of the directories after I uninstalled the program. How do I find the last restore point of my system?
