IE 7 Crashing when using Acrobat Reader

by Rosemere / January 13, 2007 8:22 AM PST

When I downloaded IE 7 I also upgrated Ac Reader to Version 8. Every time I tried to open a PDF file IE would crash. I had to save the file and then open separately.

So deleted Version 8 of Acrobat Reader and installed version 6 of Ac Reader and that seems to work fine. But I do fine it still unstable at times. Is this just part of the growing pains. I sometimes use Firefox but I share this computer with my husband so usually IE is open. He won't use Firefox.

Is there anywhere I should go to download plugins or updates or do I just wait for Microsoft to fix the problems.

I do like version 7, it took awhile and a little effort but I have it set up nearly like version # 6.

The one thing I am not crazy about are the Favorites but we can't have everything.

I am using XP and do not see me changing to Vista for a long time.

Or disconnect the PDF writer from the browser.

If you remember this PDF in the browser has always had problems. So the common cure is to tell Adobe not to open in the browser. You'll also cleanup those pesky ACR*.TMP files.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
