The first thing I would try is to use a different browser (Chrome or Firefox can easily be downloaded and installed). You can also try to download the full Reader installer from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise - the "normal" installer is just a download manager for the full installer, so maybe something goes wrong when this download manager gets started.
