PDFs won't stay open for more than a minute.

When opening any PDF I now get the message 'a problem has caused the programme to stop working correctly'. I've tried reinstalling Reader XI, but with no effect. Can someone help please? PC not Mac.

This is the very best I found about this:

1) http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_programs/adobe-reader-93-has-stopped-working-a-problem/bf847ee9-6f39-4170-a963-0343c3b81399

2) http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/56842-problem-caused-program-stop-working.html

They are both interesting threads. As you can see, both refer to that MS Windows Event Viewer to monitor system events.

DEP or Data Execution Prevention may well be the cause of your problem too because it is one of top-hits. If so, please let us know.
