Hey, I just had a battle with the adobe program on a computer, it would go to open, then right away it would show up with the error message:
"Adobe Reader <version> Has Stopped Working" then it sends information and closes.
I fixed my issue by going into the Adobe Reader folder, finding the "Plug-Ins" folder, and there was a duplicate of every plug-in in there, so it was trying to load them. As soon as I deleted the duplicated plug-ins it opened fine.
I just thought I would share this incase anyone else was having problems with adobe, as a Re-install did not seem to fix the problem, If you are having the problem try what I mentioned above.
Interesting - thank you for the suggestion!
Just to make sure: this is on Windows, or what platform?
It was on a Dell laptop, running Windows Vista. But I'm sure it would work on any machine running any Windows, not sure about linux or MAC's, but if they do have duplicates of the plug-ins and it was crashing I will still suggest it as a fix
