Question about Dell Computers & Internet
You don't mention which Operating System you have but you should scan for malware and virus. If you are infected that would explain why the drive keeps filling up and maybe even why your programs won't uninstall or updates complete. Update your AV and boot to safe mode to run the scan or do an online scan if you can, there are few good online scans but one which springs to mind is http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/. Also do a scan with free edition of MBAM http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/
Once you have done scans and removed any infection you might have clear your temp files using either Disk Clean-up from All Programs > Accessories > System Tools or a 3rd party disk cleaner if you have one (don't use any registry cleaners). Make sure you clear at least Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, Temporary Internet Files and Recycle Bin.
After doing that turn your system restore off for your C:\ drive then turn it back on again.
Check to see if your updates will install now.

Actually, I found the solution here:
Solution: Use the MSICuu2 utility to remove Acrobat and reinstall with the updates.
The Microsoft Windows Installer Cleanup Utility removes enough information from the registry to reinstall Acrobat and restore the missing registry keys.
Warning: The Microsoft Windows Installer Clean Up utility only removes registry entries read by the windows installer. Files and other registry entries for the application are not removed by this utility and could cause inadvertent effects on the system if not removed. If you use this utility, you may have to reinstall other programs that use MSI (Microsoft installer). Caution is advised. Read information about the utility on the Microsoft website at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290301 .
1. Download and install the Windows Install Clean Up utility.
a. Visit the Microsoft website at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/en-us .
b. Click the Download The Windows Installer Cleanup Utility Package Now" link in the More Information section.
c. Save the utility to your desktop.
d. Double-click msicuu2.exe and follow the onscreen instructions to install.
2. Choose Start > Program > Windows Install Clean Up to start the Windows Install Clean Up utility.
3. Select the current version of Acrobat or Adobe Reader and choose Remove.
4. Reinstall Acrobat or Adobe Reader.

SOURCE: will not leave busy....
If you are getting a 146 error, the HDD is failing. Back up your data, as you can then replace the HDD. No amount of tools or SW is going to change the fact that the drive is dying
