Acrobat Pro is slow and fails to open file almost constantly.

Recently ,for some reason my Acrobat Pro has become super slow and fails to open PDF's regularly. I know there are add-ins I dont tneed but am unsure which to disable. I have to try multiple times to open a file. Nothing opens. Then I have to go to Task Manager and "end task" for sometimes 5 or more Adobe's. Then just maybe it will open if I try again. This is awful and embarrassing.  Especially during a Teams or Zoom when I need to open a file. See pic.

Maybe its time to look elsewhere for PDF management.

Hi @Toby36934133u7uq 

 

Have you started experiencing this issue recently?

 

What is the version of the Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the recent version 24.02.20687 installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.

Also try to repair the installation from the help menu (Win Only) and see if that works.

Please try to reset the Acrobat preferences as described here https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/how-to-reset-acrobat-preference-settings-to-defau...

 

If it still doesn't work, please remove the application using the Acrobat cleaner tool https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Labs/cleaner.html, reboot the computer and reinstall the application using the direct link https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/acrobat-dc-downloads.html
