Adobe Reader X Will Not Install

The problem that I am having is that when I attempt to download Adobe Reader, it says the download has timed out. When I diagnose the problem it says that other programs are installing. I know nothing else is installing so what can I do? Please help!

Have you simply tried restarting your computer? if not try that. Also save the .exe file to your computer and navigate to the directory opening it there. Some windows updates when being installed,will interfere with the installation as well.
Also i will attach the adobe reader setup file for you. try using the attached file.

In addition I would establish a Clean Boot to make sure no other program or hung install is interfering: Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

If that isn't sufficient then work through the other Troubleshooting Steps in order.
