In my search for the answer, I came across others listing that link as the cure-all to any download or installation issues but I had already tried downloading from there before I conducted my search on Adobe's forums for what is wrong. Downloads from that website end up with the same error being generated.
Also, the computer in question has Service Pack and has had SP3 for some time so I don't think that problem is coming from there. The error is an Internet Explorer Script Error. Whatever I download seems to be something like a download manager for the actual installation file and I can't help but wonder if a setting in his Internet Options is conflicting with the download. But, it's just a guess and I don't know enough about Adobe Reader's interaction with Internet Explorer to know where to look.

I do not know why you receive that error; it's not something I have seen before.
Try downloading from this FTP link (assuming that you want the English language Reader version); there shouldn't be any script involved in this:
Thank you so very much; it worked perfectly.
I had the same problem, the FTP download worked great! thanks!
