I have 5 & 6 on my pc. if it's not causing you a problem, then just leave 5 on there (you can obviously delete the shortcut from your start menu if you want.

Have deleted the short cut from the desktop as you say it is not causing any prblems just thought it would have over wrote the old 5 adobe when installing the version 6.

thanks any way.

Odobe seems in my experience to write a complete new file when it installs but you may find that uninstalling it now will make your new version not work when you click on acrobat files.
Have you tried uninstalling 6 then 5 and reinstalling 6 bit of messing around but may work
