Adobe Reader crashes after updates
posted by Colleen Shirazi, Tuesday, March 14, 2006 at 9:24 PM (Pacific)

I just installed some Adobe Reader updates into a computer...once I'd finished (I believe it's version 7.07 now), the Reader crashed when I tried to open a PDF file inside a browser (IE).

I googled this error and got a clue off the Adobe site: Clicking links to PDF files in Internet Explorer causes Acrobat or Adobe Reader to start and then quit (7.0 on Windows).

I looked at the Internet settings in the Reader (Edit, Preferences, Internet). I noticed the Connection Speed under Internet Options was set to 56 Kbps, which is the speed this computer used to use (on dial-up). Since I was now opening the PDF files using cable Internet, I changed the speed setting to 1.5 Mbps.

So far so good...knock wood anyway. It hasn't crashed since.
