I don't think you need anything in the script apart from the msiexec... line, remove all the other lines.

Add /l*v "%temp%\acrobat6UN.log" to the end to log the uninstall.

No, you need to add /l*v "%temp%\acrobat6UN.log" to your existing msiexec command.

First you need to install the Symantec Management Agent on to the test PC.

Then you need to create a task to uninstall Adobe Acrobat - delete the IP address from the Task you have created, give it a name you're recognise and Click OK.

Then you apply the Task to the PC. Once you have saved the Task select it and click "Quick Run". Type in the first few characters of the PC name, select your test PC and click run. The Task should then run in a few minutes.
