this morning I tried open a pdf file double clicking on it but after some minutes waiting no Adobe Reader appeared.
I checked executing processes from Task Manager and it seemed to me that AR was still runnning, the process was AcroRd32.exe. So
I tried to kill it from Task Manager but nothing happened. After about 5 minutes it's stopped working from itsself.
After that I run AR first, before opening any pdf file, and after I tried to open the abother pdf file but nothing happened, AR was opening
the file after 5 minutes without success, the hourglass was still there, so I tried the Task Manager Kill button way.
XP, 32 bit, enough space, enough memory and so on,
Are there any validity check I can try? any "auto-self integrity check" I can try? maybe via command line?
To be honest, I started to monitor AR when it start running, and I saw that another process of Adobe family, start executing: AcroRd32Info.exe,
Does it matter? or involved in my problem?
Do I understand it correctly - you can open Adobe Reader by itself? If so, try the Repair option in the Help menu.
If that doesn't fix it, try to uninstall completely and reinstall.
