Did you successfully download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader 5? If not, you need to do that first. Save the program to your hard drive, then double-click on the EXE file to install it.

Adobe Acrobat Reader is free, so Adobe doesn't spend much time on the code. It often breaks with errors similar to the one you're receiving. The only thing you can do is remove it and reinstall it.

When you do any install like that you should make sure all programs running in the background (such as antivirus) are closed out. You can do a ctrl-alt-del and end task everything but Explorer and systray before running the install.
