PC Error: Raise without Handler!

Tags: #pc #not_opening #raise_without_handler

I have a PC, Windows 7. I cannot open PDFs at all and receive the error message of "Raise without Handler!" I have uninstalled/reinstalled Acrobat and Reader. I have used the Clearner tool. I have also been on the phone with our company's IT support team for 2 days. No one knows how to fix this! Everyone says this is a MAC issue but I have a PC. Please help!!!!!

    What is your Reader version?

     

    Does this happen with local or online documents?  If online, in what browser?

    I have never seen this message on Windows before.  But it could be just another form of Adobe Reader malfunctioning and closing, in which case I usually start with these three suggestions

    1. 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
    2. Can you open Adobe Reader by itself?  If so, try disabling Protected Mode [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].
    3. It could even be a malware issue; see http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/reader-core-dll-error.html

    I was having the same problem, but just in my administrator acct.  My normal std. user acct. Adobe Reader was working fine.   Pat's number one hint worked great for me.  Thanks Pat.
