Hi LizHill,

Sorry to hear about the poor experience with Adobe Reader.

You may try the following steps to fix the application-

  1. Since the application is frozen and not even letting you uninstall it, then we recommend you to use the cleaner tool to uninstall the application and its old traces- Download Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool - Adobe Labs . Reinstall it again through- Adobe - Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Distribution
  2. If this doesn't work then, create a "Hidden Administrator" account and try installing the application in that- https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/555910/how-to-enable-the-built-in-administrator-account-in-windows-vista  (similar steps)
  3. Troubleshoot errors, freezes | Adobe Reader | Windows

Let us know if this doesn't help.

Regards,

Akanchha
