Can't use Acrobat 10.1.3 post update. First noticed problem when using MS Office plugins (v2010 - windows update active-so all latest patches installed); tried saving documents into PDF; caused windows 7 crash every single time. Tried opening Acrobat; first few times was able to do so, but it crashed (bringing OS with it) after a few minutes - doing nothing but searching menus. Now, if I open acrobat or distiller, the OS is brought down. Crash behavior is a lockup for ~ 30 seconds followed by OS crash adn blue screen. Running windows 7 professional, Adobe Acrobat Standard. I've run virus scans and full battery of MS diagnostics on computer with no problems detected. Machine is < 6 months old and has 8GB of RAM. Behavior repeats when no other overt applications are running and background memory consumption is sitting around 1.4GB. Anyone seen this; have any suggestions?
What is the message that is posted by Windows when it crashes? That message might give you a hint as to what is root cause.
