    Sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
    1) Have you applied a latest patch of Win10-2004 after which you are facing this issue ?

    2) Could you confirm me the current version of Acrobat Reader DC that you have ?

    3) Could you please do Help → Repair Installation and see if it fixes the issue ?

    3) Restarted PC
    4) Ran CCleaner
    5) Ran CCleaner on registry
    6) Ran MS Disk Cleanup on C: drive, including System Files
    7) Restarted PC
    8) Downloaded current Adobe Reader DC Version 2020.012.20048 from Adobe
    - Unchecked Chrome extension, unchecked both McAfee options, run install
    9) Downloading OK, Installation Complete
    - uncheck "Launch" box, click Finish
    10) Set Adobe Reader DC as default for PDF files
    11) Everything looks OK, no lockup - Version 2020.012.20048 now showing in "About"
    12) Restarted PC
