Thanks for posting.
Do you face this issue consistently or intermittently? Is it with some specific file or random file? Meanwhile can you take a crash dump and share with us the same.
Steps for taking crash dump:-
1. Right click on the Crashdump.bat script (attached as .txt. Change it after downloading)
2. Choose "Run As Administrator"
3. Click OK if UAC prompt appears
4. Once this setup is done crash dump will be generated at %LOCALAPPDATA%\CrashDumps folder for any application crash. Please note once this crash dump is enabled the application would take longer to go away after the crash.
5. To disable crash dump generation, download and run the Reg_remove.bat script (Run it as admin). Both these scripts are attached here.
6. Also when sharing crash dumps, please share Acrobat/Reader version with which these dumps were taken. You can do this by checking Acrobat.exe/AcroRd32.exe version info in properties. Go to Acrobat/Reader installation directory? Right click on Acrobat.exe/AcroRd32.exe and open properties. Switch to Details tab. Please share Product Version mentioned in the list.
You can send these details at firstname.lastname@example.org
