I am always getting this error when trying to open PDFs from IE and Firefox. I have Repaired Acrobat 6.0 that I have and also reinstalled it. Neither help. What can this be? Please help!
The instruction at "0x2d8818d3" referenced memory at "000000008" The memory can not be read.
I've read that in browsers, this is commonly caused by "add-ons" or BHOs (Browser Helper Objects - Google Toolbar and the like)
There's a Wiki article on this here: "What causes the error 'The instruction at "" referenced memory at "" in (app). The memory could not be read?"
Wiki has to be taken with a grain of salt, but my experience is that this specific type of error is caused when a program tries to access a corrupted registry entry for the particular program, of something (another program perhaps) has changed access rules for that particular file. BHOs will often do that.
If you have third party toolbars installed in Firefox and IE, try disabling or uninstalling them altogether and see if the error goes away.
