Reader XI stops working and shuts down

Adobe Reader XI shuts down when trying to open a pdf file. I've already run the clean-up utility and re-installed it but continue to have the same problem.  This is on Windows 7 premium home edition,

Some things to try...
Using Windows Explorer navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader, then double-click on Eula.exe and accept the license agreement
Can you open Adobe Reader by itself?  If so, try disabling Protected Mode [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].
If you cannot open Reader by itself, try to disable Protected Mode in the registry; download, unzip, then run the attached registry script
It could even be a malware issue; see http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/reader-core-dll-error.html

  • Help please! can't import CDs, Itunes stops working and shuts down:(

    Hi All, Itunes worked fine up until couple of days ago and now when I insert a CD to import it recognises the CD but when it starts importing, itunes stops working and shuts down immediately. What do I need to do? I read the discussions but couldn't find an answer, most questions were about burning a CD so your help will be highly appreciated...many thanks indeed

    Itunes worked fine up until couple of days ago and now when I insert a CD to import it recognises the CD but when it starts importing, itunes stops working and shuts down immediately.
    First we need to check your precise version number, elektra. In iTunes go "Help > About iTunes" and wait for the version number to scroll up from the bottom of the screen.
    Do you see *iTunes 10.1.0.54* ? If so, we need to update you to version 10.1.0.56 . It probably wont appear for you in Apple Software Update if you already have a 10.1.0.54 already installed, so you'll need to download the installer from the Apple Website, as per the following document:

  • I upgraded my iPad (3rd gen) to iOS 7.  When I go to iTunes and look at the summary and to the "Apps" list tab, iTunes stops working and shuts down.  What can I do?  I am using a Windows 7 machine.

    Hi thanks for the encouragement.  It's not that the severs are "swamped", iOS 7 has been successfully installed.
    I can't access the apps list in iTunes because it *****
    down.  Its pretty frustrating because many of my apps require me to manually transfer files into iTunes first to view
    them.  Not sure if the servers being swamped is an issue for me, unless they release a bug fix through another version of iTunes.
    Has anyone else had this problem?  My iPad is pretty useless unless I can access my app list in iTunes....

  • 10.5 will not let me add album name. itunes stops working and shuts down

    10.5 will not let me add album name. itunes stops working and shuts down.

    I am having this problem.  At first with the new iPhone 5, and then with the iPad 2.  I am not sure why this is happening. 
    My gut feeling is this is an iO6 issue and here's why -
    The problem mainly occurs with apps.  I have about 150 apps, and when I plugged in the phone, iTunes went to sync all of them.  The process would hang up after about 20 - 30 apps were loaded onto the phone. I could tell where about the process hung up because the apps on the phone showed up as "waiting".
    Then on the iPad 2 I plugged in to sync and saw there was a huge "Other" component in my storage.  It required me to restore the iPad 2 from backup.  With this restore the same issues occurred - putting the apps back on the iPad would hang up.  The videos on the iPad also got stuck - maybe after about 10 hours of videos transfered iTunes crashed.
    My solution has been to soft reset the device, restart Windows, and continue the process until it's complete.  This is remarkably inefficient and time-intensive but everything works with patience.
    I have been wondering if others have had these same problems. 

  • Firefox "stops working" and shuts down every few mins or less.

    A message pops up that says Firefox has stopped working and to close the program. I can "refresh" to the same spot but it's happening every few mins or less. Any suggestions? It's only been happening for the past 3 days, and like others who's systems are "crashing," it's only been happening since the newest update (18) updated onto my computer. I have already done the Firefox refresh or whatever it was called... The only thing that did was get rid of my extra bookmark toolbar rows...still trying to figure out how to get those back! :(

    We're sorry to hear that your Firefox seems to be crashing. Please perform the following steps to give us a crash report ID that helps us find out more about the cause of the crash.
    #Enter about:crashes in the Firefox location bar (that's where you enter your website names) and press Enter. You should now see a list of submitted crash reports.
    #Copy the most recent 5 report IDs that you see in the crash report window and paste them into your forum response.
    Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Photoshop CS5 has stopped working and shuts down

    I purchased Photoshop CS5 in March 2011 and after trying to install software I was unable to do anything in Photoshop without getting the following error message:  "Adobe Photoshop CS5 has stopped working".  A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.  Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.  I was unable to open any psd file or new file withouth that error message.  After you close that error message window, Photoshop immediately closes down. I had someone from Adobe remotely fix this problem.  Now it is appearing again and I am unable to use the program.  I need help with this.  Please.

  • When using iTunes it stops working and shuts down.

    I am unable to use the program at all, wether I am trying to sync my new iPod Touch or just to play music. The only thing I haven't tried is uninstalling the program and I am holding off on that until I find out if I am going to lose all of my music or not. Somebody, please help me.

    1. Close all apps in the Task Bar. Double-click the Home button and hold apps down for a second or two. Tap the minus sign to close app.
    2. Hold the Sleep and Home button down until you see the Apple Logo.

  • Why does Elements stop working and shut down when I try to use the smartbrush tool?

    I can use the smart brush tool until I need to change the color. The second I try to change the color of my object, I get a pop up window that says there is a problem and windows has to close to the program. I have already restarted my computer and it still does it.

    There is an update available for Elements 13 which has stability fixes. Please install this update and let me know if you are still facing this issue.

  • Adobe Reader 11 stopped working and now will not install

    For some reason my Adobe Reader 11 stopped working today when I tried to use it so I figured I would try to re-install it. Well, re-installing it helped none. The same error keeps re-occuring. Here is a screenshot of the error message I keep getting:

    Any solutions?
    Thanks!

    You can try using this tool to remove all traces of Reader:
    http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/acrobatcleaner.html
    Then, you may download the offline Reader installer from

    After downloading, restart your computer and run the installer before doing anything else.

  • Elements Organizer (photoshop elements 11) stops working and shuts the program down.

    I have had Photoshop Elements for several years - first used version 3   then 8 (lost in the 2010 Nashville Flood)  bought 9 last year) - then 11 purchased in Dec 2012.
    I had trouble installing 11 (Premier and photoshop kept locking up in the install process)   finally installed after 8 hours of problems when I did a clean boot uninstalled Virus protection etc.
    Very Frustrating.  Installing on HP Pavilion purchased after the flood - 3gigs ram - windows 7 operating system.  I have over 2000 pics and HD video clips on the hard drive and during the final installation the files were (converted)  according to the install
    I tried the "Online Chat" and was cut off
    I've been unable to use the new Organizer since it shuts down.   Tried several times over several days with the same results.  
    Today I transfered a number of photos (jpeg) from Zip drive to the hard drive - followed the instructions on page 9 of the all too brief booklet and
    - the pics came up on the screen --HOORAY
    UNFORTUNATELY THE CELEBRATION WAS PREMATURE - Organizer stopped AGAIN   HELP!!!

    1. Close Elements.
    2. Launch the Photoshop Elements Welcome Screen and hold down ctrl + alt + shift as you click Organizer.
    3. Continue to hold the keys until you see a message box asking if you want to delete settings file; click Yes.  It will open with default preferences.
    Solution 3:
    Start PSE to get to the Welcome screen.
    Hold down the Shift key and click Organizer . Keep holding down the keys until you see the Catalog window.
    Select your catalog and click Repair.  Select “repair anyway” even if PSE doesn’t find problems.
    Then for good measure, click Optimize.
    If repairing resolves your issue then fine else repeat the above steps, but click New to create a new catalog.  If you’re able to import photos into the new catalog and the Organizer works fine, then problem can be old catalog.
    In that case you can try regenerating the thumbnails.  Do Show All, Edit > Select All, and then Edit > Update Thumbnail.
    Please delete the following files from the location : C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Elements Organizer\9.0\Organizer
    psa.prf
    status.dat
    Now go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Elements 9 Organizer\ and run the exe PhotoshopElementsOrganizer.exe with Admin rights.
    If you are on MAC, you will get the files psa.prf and status.dat at ~/library/app support/adobe/elements organizer/9.0/organizer. Post deleting them try launching Organizer.
    try and let me know your comments.

  • PlayBook battery level warning does not always work and shuts down without warning

    My BlackBerry PlayBook, operating on the new OS2, annoyingly shuts down at 12% battery life without any warning if I have anything open.  If open applications are reduced so that the desktop is visible, the PlayBook will alarm at 9% and and continue to run below this figure.   Does anyone have a solution to this or experienced this issue?  Thank you.

    Your Macbook is still under warranty.
    I would call Apple Support and see what they recommend. You don't have to purchase the AppleCare unless you want to.
    You have another choice.
    You can buy a new battery and see if that works for you.

    Then you could take in the original battery and have it checked out under warranty.
    Of course, you would probably end up with two batteries in the end but sometimes that is a good thing depending on how much you travel.
