It's possible that you're experiencing problems because the Windows Installer is looking for files in a temp folder that is no longer there.

Download Microsoft Installer Cleanup. Run as administrator and only select Adobe Reader 9 and/or Adobe Reader XI if in the list. (If not in the list exit out.) Click the remove button making absolutely sure no other programs other than Adobe Reader are selected. Try reinstalling Adobe Reader again. When you're finished you can remove the Microsoft Installer Cleanup from your computer.

Run as Administrator

Once you click the remove button, the changes are permanent. At a minimum I would suggest making a new restore point (better yet, a system image) just in case.
