Hi Tony,


Welcome to Microsoft Community and thanks for posting the question.


Based on the description provided, it looks like you are facing an issue while installing Adobe Acrobat on your Windows XP Operating System.


It would be great if you could answer these questions in order to assist you further.


1.       Which version of Internet Explorer is installed on your computer?

2.       Is the issue confined only while updating Adobe Acrobat?


Script error messages are displayed by Internet Explorer when there is a problem with the JavaScript or VBScript code on the website you are viewing. Occasionally a script error can be caused by an error in downloading a webpage, but more often it is an error in the webpage itself.


I would suggest you to download and run the offline installers
