Adobe reader 9 stops working everytime I try to open a PDF

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
Every single time I try to open a PDF it opens but then pretty much straight away a box comes up saying that adobe reader 9 has stopped working and windows will now close it. No explanation in the box as to why this is happening. It also happens when trying to view a PDF on the internet and the whole browser gets closed. Any ideas as to why or what I can do to fix this problem?

Thanks.

The same thing is happening to me.... It's getting old real quick! And it's delaying my work! It started happening as soon as I downloaded the latest Adobe update...

The pdf would generally open for me, but not in a web browser and with an error message every time. I was unable to open web-based pdf forms I need for work because they would not open in the browser.

I finally took Adobe 9 off and just use my older Acrobat Prof. It isn't as nice but it works.

Uninstall all versions of adobe reader or acrobat from the computer. Then, reinstall aither adobe reader or acrobat. They won't work if they are both on your computer. I was having this same problem because I had acrobat 5 and adobe reader 9. So i took both off and reinstall adobe reder 9 and now everything is just dandy!!!!!

I don't have Acrobat, but I do have the problem. I removed Reader, restarted the computer, installed Reader X. A few days it all went well, but after that the problem re-appeared. I have been using Acrobat reader for about as long as it exists, but now I have no choice as to go to FoxIt Reader. Normally I wouldn't change a program that works, but Acrobat Reader just doesn't...
