I am a network administrator and I have installed and used in my network (about 25 computers) Reader v 9.3.2 ever since it was availible (6m - 1y). I usually update all software to the latest versions ASAP.
Today, all of the sudden, all computers started behave as I said, which is : Adobe reader freezes after about 3 seconds after opening, by a file or by itself.
The rest of the apps work fine. All I can do is end task the reader and that's it.
I have tried everything and for now, what I can do is uninstall 9.3.2 and install 8.2 which works fine.
Please tell me that I do not have to uninstall Adobe Reader from all computers and go to prehystorical ages and install 8.2.
I need an answer by monday otherwise I might just do that.
Thank you very much in advance and have a nice we.
This happend in our network today as well.
We ended up having to uninstall the reader and download/reinstall.
It impacted printing in Outlook 2007 as well.
Never mind ...
It came back by itself ...
It seems like Adobe Reader needed a Weekend brake ... all computers work fine now, if not directly, just one restart of windows will do the trick.
This is one of the moments when I want to drop my IT Career and become a math teacher ...
what ever ...
My Adobe Reader, on a PC running XP SP3, is still shutting down a few seconds after I try to load any file. I've done multiple reboots, have uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled, and still am having this same problem. I hope the Adobe gurus are still working on the problem.
