Yes, you'll need to uninstall the Adobe Download Manager.

Then, I would manually install Reader without using the Download Manager:

Have you tried double-checking to make sure you don't have any previous versions installed in the control panel. If so, completley uninstall them first.

Yes. I have Adobe AIR, Flash Player 11 ActiveX, Flash Player 11 Plugin, and Shockwave Player 12.0 but no Reader. I also have Adobe Download Manager whch I tried to uninstall throght control panel but I get a note saying "There was a problem starting C:\ProgramFiles\NOS\bin\getPlus_Helper_3004.dll The soecific module could not be found." Is this significant?
