I have tried all of the suggestions available on the net. IE is not open. I download using firefox, close that, insure that neither firefox or IE have any open processes, And still get the error that includes adobe.js. I can run other java scripts on this computer. I have now uninstalled reader 9 to see if that was the problem, and flash to see if it acted the same. They all act the same and I cannot install any of them. All same error (adobe.js). I am a computer based systems consultant.
Additional info: I was able to update from 9 to 11 on one of my other computers running XP sp3, but not on the one described above. I now do not have any versions of Flash or Reader on that computer, and as stated above, can not install them.
Download the offline installer(s) from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#mai n-pars_header
