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)
Delete All Comments in Word in a Flash
You needn't clear comments in a Word document one by one. Instead, bring out the big guns to delete all of them at once:
1. Chose Tools > Keyboard Shortcuts.
2. Under Categories, select Tools.
3. Under Commands, select DeleteAllCommentsInDoc.
4. With the insertion point in the "Press new keyboard shortcut" field, press keys to create a keyboard shortcut. (I use Control-7)
5. Click the Assign button.
6. Click OK.
You can now press your keyboard shortcut to zap out the comments.
The steps above work in Word 2008; they likely work nearly as described in older versions of Word.

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.
