Failed to Initialize ~ Adobe Reader

I've completed a new computer system build. I am downloading necessary programs for school. I supposedly downloaded install_flashplayer_exe after closing Firefox. I have attempted several times to install Adobe Reader but continue to receive the dreaded, "Failed to initialize" message.


I have tried IE 8, Chrome, and Firefox. Each time I turn off Avast. Still it will not download. I can't find any adobe products in my add-ons or plug-ins or extensions. This is getting so frustrating. I'm using Windows XP SP3.


Any help will be greatly appreciated....Toda1
