When I start the installation of Adobe Reader, I get an error message:

This installer package could not be opened. Verify that the package exist and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package.

Why am I getting this error message?

You should probably provide more information. What OS are you using? Exactly what file are you running? You might need to list the directory contents where the file is. This could be a permissions problem. – Marnix A. van Ammers May 21 '10 at 17:13
A heading of "Can any body help me ..." is not very useful. Always try to have problem-related keywords in your question. – Marnix A. van Ammers May 21 '10 at 17:19

What about trying to get the package with other browser? Try to disable your anti-virus solution when downloading the package?

It sounds like your download got corrupted. Delete the download file you have, and download a new installer from Adobe :

When you go to run it, right click and Run-As-Administrator.
