So lately, I've been unable to open any pdf file. I go to it, it opens. Then it brings up an error message saying:

a serious error has been detected and adobe acrobat 8.1.0 pro cannot continue. Please reinstall the application and try again.

Followed by:

Runtime error! C:\program files\adobe\acrobat 8.0\acrobat\acrobat.exe. This app has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more info.

And then:

the instruction at "0x042b1243" referenced memory at "0x03da597c" the memory could not be "written"

--

My Acrobat came with the computer and I have no file to reinstall it with, but I found Adobe Reader 9 and Acrobat 8 was with it, and I downloaded and installed that. It didn't help.

What can I do?

That has happened to me a number of times with computers in my office. I found this on Acrobat's site - I don't know if it helps.
