    Sound's like a bad D/L I had no problems like that with mine, if you found that torrent on a popular site it could be bad.

    moved to correct forum as not a virus/spyware problem.

    Hey

    Uninstall the older version of Adobe Reader,then restart your computer,then go to the website at the bottom to download Adobe Reader 8.
    If you still have problems then scan your computer for virus,spyware,Trojans.
