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)
Access OpenType Font Features
OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

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.
