Windows 7: Adobe Acrobat Crashing every time!

Adobe Acrobat Crashing every time!

Once again, I am back with another hair-ripping problem plaguing my system… so here we go.

For the last few days now I have been completely unable to load, open, view (or even launch them in the actual program on my computer) .PDF files online – every time I do, my browsers (FireFox, Chrome AND IE) all freeze up and I am notified that the Adobe Acrobat plugin has failed. I end up having to manually close my browsers using TaskManager because I can’t get the browsers responsive enough to shut them down normally.

I have already tried updating Acrobat as well as the plugins of the browsers themselves - to absolutely no avail.

Please help me figure out what is wrong and how to fix it if you can… I swear I will rep EVERYONE who gives it their best shot. I really need .PDF to work!!!


Thank you!


EDIT: I went on another computer, downloaded the wanted .PDF, emailed it to myself and tried opening it in the program directly and it also has froze and is telling me "Not Responding". So this is not just isolated to the browser plugin.

You may not like this advice but it's what I'm going to suggest.
Remove adobe reader.
Replace with foxit.
Secure PDF Reader

It's much smaller, loads faster, and in my personal experience actually works better.

Was just curious if that solved your issue?

It is the damnedest thing, but it seems to have resolved itself. I have absolutely no clue why, but there it is. Thank you for the help anyways, if it ever does that again I will definitely chuck Adobe's plugin I have and go for Foxit.
