Every time I have tried to download the newest update of Adobe reader it says that I must log on to administrator to download and I am not able to figure out how to go about this, I have a gateway computer, I just recently bought it from a friend of mine and can not figure out how to download Adobe and I need this application to work in order for me to continue in the business I am currently working for. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.

This isn't an Adobe help forum. But, you don't need to be logged in as an admin to download most software, just to be able to install it in Windows.

If you don't know what an administrator's account is, or don't have the password to log into it in Windows, then you may not have access clearance to install software. (You may not be an adult; or using someone else's computer, etc.).
