Foxit vs 7 auto downloaded and updated my older 32 bit vs. I could use Foxit to read but could no longer covert Excel or Word files to PDF.

I also tried download ding and activating cutePDFwriter. Had the same problem. Each time I tried to click on the setup.exe file, I would get an error message that I was maybe not authorized etc.....

I went to the control panel and did the uninstall bit, still the new setu.exe files would not do anything.

What's the exact error message you get when trying to run the EXE installers? Sometimes malware breaks a setting in Windows and stops you from running EXE files. I've seen numerous threads about that on Microsoft's support site, but to zero in on the right remedy, it would be best to search the exact error message.

File is FoxitReader 703.0916_prom_enu_Setup.Exe

It would have helped if the robo posts had a direct e-mail line where an attachment could be done so you could see the dialog box the message is presented in. This method is the long way around

Microsoft has a support article for this error for Windows 7, but I imagine many of issues/fixes are common to Windows XP:

Does anything there help?
