Adobe Acrobat 9.3.3 and Reader 9.3.3 are security updates to the longstanding PDF creation and viewing applications. The updates address several critical vulnerabilities, including one in Flash 10.0.45.2 that could be exploited by an attacker to take control of a user's system after a program crash. There are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild, so we recommend updating right away. (Free update, 86.62/8.03 MB)
Fixing Save as Adobe PDF Crashes
There have been many reported instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF" workflow crashing regardless of application, but precious few workarounds or resolutions. In troubleshooting, I discovered that there were three instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF.action" in three different locations: /Library/Automator; ~/Library/Automator; and /System/Library/Automator. By eliminating all except the version in /System/Library/Automator, the workflow started behaving, and I was able to cut PDFs directly from the Print dialog.

Many folks are encountering the same problematic update issues. I guess the battle between Apple and Adobe is at our expense.
If you've renamed or moved anything related to the original installation, you'll have to fix that before upgrading. And if that doesn't work, you may have to reinstall from scratch, and then upgrade that fresh installation.
I've had to do both in various times, and in fact, I haven't upgraded my copy of Acrobat Pro 9 yet because of this. Just too much hassle.
I really wish Adobe would use something simple and effective, like Sparkle.
