Acrobat keeps crashing

Jun 23, 2009 8:57 AM

Hi folks,


Im using Adobe Acrobat 8 (version 8.1.0) and every time I open Acrobat it keeps crashing after a few seconds...


I get a pop window saying 'The application Acrobat quit unexpectantly...other apllications are not affected' etc etc


When using Safari it sometimes quits too, again the pop up window says 'The application Safari quit unexpectantly. The problem may have been caused by the Adobe Cooltype plug-in'


are these 2 problems related?


Thanks for any help.

    I'd suggest two things. Fix permissions and remove your user cache. This can be done with Applejack or Onyx.

    I found a solution.

    Got to your program icon for Acrobat - and right click - open package contents -

    Then go to the plug-ins folder and delete the Updater folder -

    It should stop crashing from there one.
