    I tried going to Library->Internet Plugins, but nothing is there.

    I much prefer Preview, it's much faster...

    You need to remove the plugins that Adobe Reader installed (AdobePDFViewerNPAPI.plugin eg) here:

    /Library/Internet Plugins

    instead of here:

    username/Library/Internet Plugins

    In other words, check the Library folder at the root of your hard drive, not the Library in your user folder.

    Can I still be logged in on the user profile and get to it through Finder? I don't know how to access that.

    Edit: I fixed the problem.
