Hey guys, im new to this forum and im in need of help asap

Ill start from the start... Last week my laptop decided to tell me that i had a faulty HDD so i took it in to Toshiba and they had replaced the HDD for me.
Before the HDD got replaced i had Windows 7 32bit with no problems at all well now with the new HDD i have windows 7 64 bit.
For the last 3 days i have been doing the windows updates none stop and making sure everything is up to date. My problem is now that i want to install Adobe reader 10 and this comes up.. see pic windows installer.
I tried to use Microsoft fixit and this error msg popped up... see pic Microsoft fixit error
