Hello,

I have been working with Adobe Reader for a long time. I am currently having issues with my Adobe DC. It works fine on my MacBook Air but unfortunately it keeps freezing on my iMac Retina when I click on the highlight button.

How do I solve this?

Hi Federicof,

Sorry for the delay in response.

We have received few reports related to this issue and sadly we have not been able to reproduce the issue in-house.

  • Please check if you have any pending updates for Reader.
  • Check if the issue is reproducible with all the files you are trying to highlight.
  • Is there any other tool under comments/annotation that is causing this issue? Or it just the highlight tool?
  • Have you tried reinstalling the application?
  • If not, try uninstalling and try reset prefere

I have been having the same issue on my Windows 10 laptop. Every so often when I'm highlighting documents the document will freeze then say "Acrobat has stopped working" and shut down. However, recently (in the last 2 weeks), it will freeze my entire computer and the only way to solve the issue is to restart my computer. This keeps happening in 10-15 minute intervals and I can't get any work done. I've tried reinstalling the program several times, and repairing the installation, as well as updating my computer system. Nothing has worked and it's really interrupting my work.

Hello sorrelr70463918

We apologize for the inconvenience caused, as per the description above, the Adobe Reader DC is crashing on your Windows 10 machine and you have tried uninstalling and repairing the Adobe Reader, Is that correct?

Please try removing installed Adobe Reader using the Acrobat cleaner tool Download Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool - Adobe Labs

Reboot the machine, and then install the Adobe Reader from Adobe - Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Distribution and see if this brings any difference.

If the issue still persists, please enable the hidden administrator account (https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/555910/how-to-enable-the-built-in-administrator-account-in-... ) Or create a new Test User profile with full admin rights and try to install Adobe Reader and see if you still face any issue.

Let us know your findings.

Regards,

Anand Sri.

Hi,

Thank you for the advice. Unfortunately, I have tried both these methods and neither work: my computer still freezes if I’m highlighting a lot.

I also have tried all of these suggestions and it hangs.  I notice that the Windows lsass.exe process is always at 100% when this happens.

Each time I pull up a PDF, I get a square blank screen in front of the document and a continual colored circle. Even after 10 minutes it will not go away, will not allow me to close it.  I cannot pull up any PDF docs.
