Adobe reader crashes when I try and start up

As in title, just tried to open various pdf docs but the program crashes after a few secs, I have win 8.1 running latest reader which I have just removed and reinstalled.

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

  • Adobe Reader crashes when fast scrolling and using IAccessible interface

    Acrobat Reader 8, 9 crashes on Vista, XP, 2003 server by following steps:
    1. Open two huge documents (>1000 pages).
    2. Get IAccessible object by AccessibleObjectFromWindow function from external application.
    3. Fast scroll in one document and quickly click on second doc's vertical slider bar several times.
    Here I get APPCRASH ("Acrobat Reader has stopped working").
    If external program doesn't get IAccessible, Acrobat Reader works normally.
    If I close external program after getting IAccessible Acrobat crashes after scrolling too.
    Reading mode option is set to "Read the currently visible pages only" in "Accessibility Reader Options".
    any ideas?

    Known bug. Use the Advanced Search instead.

  • Adobe Flash crash when I try to upload some photos to create an album on Facebook . I think this issue related to the new version of Mozilla Firefox that I had installed 3 days ago and cause my system not able to open the internet . But I have sent a rep

    Adobe flash crash when I try to upload photos to created album on Facebook . Is this related to the new version of Mozilla Firefox that I installed few days ago.

    Did you reinstall CS3 after CC?
    For that matter, doing an in-place upgrade on the OS is always a gamble with Adobe programs. Reinstalling all the versions you need, in order, would probably solve your problem.
    And you shouldn't need to save as IDML after opening the .inx in CC.

  • Photoshop CS6 keeps crashing when I try and change brush colour

    Hi, my Photoshop CS6 keeps crashing when I try and change brush colour. I use layer masks a lot and consequently need to switch between black and white brushes. CS6 crashes a lot and gets closed by Windows 7 when I either click in the icon to swap brush colour or press the X keyboard shortcut. It's driving me crazy. I run Windows 7 on a high spec Dell PC. The problem has only started a couple of months ago, had CS6 since it came out. Can I advise me please? Thanks.

    Please read these and proceed accordingly (restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be of special interest):

  • Indesign crashes when I try and open my document

    I created a file in Indesign which represents many days of work.
    It crashed indesign when I was pdf'ing the document and now it crashes indesign every time I try to open it.
    It is my only version.
    I have tried many ways to open it but nothing has worked - can you help?
    I've just realised that now - Indesign crashes when I try and open any document!
    Thanks very much
    NB Someone suggested I send it to Adobe and they may be able to fix it, but I can't find a contact email to send it to.

    You need to empty the InDesign Recovery folder (which is hidden in your user profile/library). You can find the path to InDesign SavedData in this link: Replace Your Preferences  and the recovery folder should be in the same folder with the InDesign SavedData file.
    Once the recovery folder is empty you should be able to launch ID, then try opening the file. If it wasn't damaged while writing it back to disk it will be fine, in the last previously saved state.

  • Adobe Reader crashes when printing

    Dear sir,
    Our CEO has an issue with Adobe Reader crashing when he tries to print. His Operating System is Windows Vista x64.
    This issue does not happen always, but still enough to be inconvenient.

    Have you got any idea what the issue/solution may be?
    Thank you in advance.
    Best regards,

    sorry will not be able to attach the pdf file - The file isn't damaged as it will print from other printers as  they all use the same print drivers as they print through a print server.
    I have also attached to the printer off-line and used new printer drivers from HP and it still fails 20 page pdf and stops at page 9 saying cannot extract correct font.
    the file was created in Quark express ver 8.
    It is happening to a handfull of people

  • IWeb crashes when I try to start it

    Hey there, I have a 6mos old iMac 2.33 running latest apple software with 2GB RAM but for the life of I can't get iMovie (08) to start up. Each time I try, it makes the little coloured spinning thing comes up and then Activity Monitor tells me it has stopped running. I end up having to force quit each time.
    Any suggestions.

    don't know the answer to ur question but the title of your post is iWeb crashes when I try to start it...just letting u know. Hope u find a solution!

  • Imac crashes when i try to start itunes...all other programs are working fine....help !!!

    imac crashes when i try to start itunes.... have updated everything...still crashes...please help...

    These instructions must be carried out as an administrator. If you have only one user account, you are the administrator.
    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    For this step, the title of the Console window should be All Messages. If it isn't, select
              SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ All Messages
    from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
              View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
    In the top right corner of the Console window, there's a search box labeled Filter. Initially the words "String Matching" are shown in that box. Enter "BOOT_TIME" (without the quotes.)
    Each message in the log begins with the date and time when it was entered. Select the BOOT_TIME log message that corresponds to the last boot time when you had the problem. Now clear the search box to reveal all messages. Select the ones logged before the boot, during the time something abnormal was happening. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
    For example, if the system was unresponsive or was failing to shut down for three minutes before you forced a restart, post the messages timestamped within three minutes before the boot time, not after. Please include the BOOT_TIME message at the end of the log extract—not at the beginning.
    If there are long runs of repeated messages, please post only one example of each. Don’t post many repetitions of the same message.
    When posting a log extract, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.
    Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Please don't indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Please don't post screenshots of log messages—post the text.
    Step 2
    In the Console window, select
              DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION ▹ System Diagnostic Reports
    (not Diagnostic and Usage Messages) from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
              View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.
    There is a disclosure triangle to the left of the list item. If the triangle is pointing to the right, click it so that it points down. You'll see a list of reports. A crash report has a name that begins with the name of the crashed process and ends in ".crash". A panic report has a name that begins with "Kernel" and ends in ".panic". A shutdown stall report has a name that ends in ".shutdownstall". Select the most recent of each, if any. The contents of the report will appear on the right. Use copy and paste to post the entire contents—the text, not a screenshot. It's possible that none of these reports exists.
    I know the report is long, maybe several hundred lines. Please post all of it anyway.
    If you don't see any reports listed, but you know there was a crash or panic, you may have chosen Diagnostic and Usage Messages from the log list. Choose DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION instead.
    In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)
    Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report—they're very long and rarely helpful.

  • HT201240 I just got my Mac yesterday.  My kids want to access sites that need the adobe player.  When I try and download it asks for a password.   I do not even remember setting one up?  How do i find out what it is?

    I just got my Mac yesterday.  My kids want to access sites that need the adobe player.  When I try and download it asks for a password.   I do not even remember setting one up?  How do i find out what it is?

    FYI this is the legitimate Flash Player installer:
    This one is bogus:
    As X423424X wrote do not download it from any site other than the one he linked.
    Adobe does not require a password to download the Flash installer. Generally speaking passwords are not required to download software, unless you must register with the website so as to log in. In that case you should never use the same name and password you use to administer your Mac.

    The RAM has either gone bad or somehow become unseated. Also there is the chance that the RAM slots have failed.

  • Updated Adobe AIR and now Adobe reader crashes when trying to open PDFs created by Livescribe

    Adobe AIR auto-updated earlier this afternoon, and now every time I try to open a PDF created by Livescribe, Adobe Reader crashes.
    Adobe Reader XI ver. 11.0.0.379
    Adobe AIR ver. 3.5.0.1060
    Windows 7 Pro, SP1
    I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling both AIR and Reader, to no avail. I can provide install log for AIR if needed (just need to know how to upload it, or if you'd rather me paste the text).
    Thanks for any help,
    -Rick

    Hi Rick,
    I'm surprised that the AIR update would cause Reader to crash.  I received an update to Reader recently (yesterday I think), could this have also occurred on your system?  Regardless, we should be able to drop back to an earlier version of AIR to try it out.  Just uninstall and then grab AIR 3.4 located here:
    http://download.macromedia.com/air/win/download/3.4/AdobeAIRInstaller.exe
    Please let me know if this helps.
    Thanks,
    Chris
