Adobe PDF Thumbnails crash my Windows Explorer, cannot access folders any longer

Since recently, I cannot access folders any longer which contain PDF files with long filenames. Windows Explorer just keeps crashing as soon as the PDF thumbnails show up.

I don't really care whose issue this is (MS or Adobe). I also don't care if Adobe fixes the issue, as I allready know it will never get fixed (just like all the other thumbnail issues with CC apps and Windows and the eternal blame game). 

But I do need quick help to access my files. This has become a real issue as I cannot get into the folders and the files inside are hugely important to me.

Anyone know of a way I can stop PDF Acrobat from showing thumbnails in Windows Explorer, so the app stops crashing and I can finally access all my files again? As I mentioned, I cannot get into the folder, so it would have to be some global fix. 

I appreciate any help (please only focus on how to get into folder).
