I just tried it using the download manager and it installed just fine.
When I download the .exe file to my hard drive and try to install it I get the above error

So you have Adobe Reader installed and working now?
If not, download the MSI instead of EXE file: http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.3/enu/AdbeRdr930_en_US.msi
Yes I do but thank you very much for the link to the msi file. I wasn't aware that it was available for download
Hello. I have had the exact same problem as the person above, with the exact same crash timestamps and IDs. Using the msi worked for me aswell but I was left with an issue. If I install the product via msi instead of exe, everytime I delete one of adobe reader's shortcuts, I will get a "please wait while windows configures acrobat" every time I launch adobe reader. At the end of this process the shortcuts are put back in my programs and desktop, basically adobe insists on keeping them there and if I dare to remove them it detects the change, launches windows installer, and puts them back.
As I understand there are certain command line parameters for the MSI that will either prevent instalation of shortcuts altogether, or stop adobe from "regenerating" itself everytime I delete them. How can I do that?
Had similar problem as OP when installing AR 9.3.3 Entered Control Panel, User Accounts then turned ON User Account Control. Installed without any issues. Be sure to install the AR 9.3.4 Updates to patch the security issue.
NB. The PC needs to restart for the UAC settings to be effective, else it will still not install.
