We apologize for the inconvenience caused, as per the description above, Excel is crashing due to the Acrobat PDFmaker plug-in, Is that correct?
As you mentioned earlier that you have tried reinstalling Acrobat and Office applications, but Excel is still crashing, please check for any pending/mandate updates of Windows from Control Panel, install them and reboot the machine and see if this brings any difference.
