Try creating a new Admin account and log in using that new account. Download 8.1.6 patch from http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4487 to your local machine and run it by double clicking it. See if this works.
Downloaded the fix, vetted it, and before creating a new Administrator account used the following recipe with success:
1. Ran downloaded fix with usual Admin Account and got the “Error 1321 for Search.api.” as before, but now there is a pop-up asking "Retry" or "Cancel" that did not appear when using "Get Updates" function from running Adobe Reader. Replied "Cancel".
2. Rebooted, and disabled Kaspersky Anti-Virus.
3. Again ran downloaded fix with usual Admin Account and got Error 1321 for different file: "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\plug_ins3d\3difr.x3d" with pop-up asking "Retry" or "Cancel".
4. Clicked "Retry" this time and installation completed successfully.
Why don't use 9.1.2
FM Eric asked "Why [not] use 9.1.2?"
At this writing I'm unwilling to upgrade to the 9 version of Adobe Reader, mainly because I want to avoid Adobe AIR.
http://download.cnet.com/Adobe-Reader/3000-10743_4-10000062.html?tag=mncolYou can download reader 9 without AIR or .com....@ this Link..
If you want to update to 9.1.3 you first open the Reader program and click on the Help Tab in the toolbar at the top of the window..Then click on the Update selection in the drop down menu...That will download and install 9.1.3...It will not work if you use the "Update Available" Pop-Up..
