Are you using Adobe Acrobat XI or are you using Adobe Reader XI (free version)? Adobe Acrobat is a premium product that allows you to create PDF files from any documents and images while Adobe Reader is just an ordinary program that allows you to read pdf files and pdf eBooks.
Generally, for most people update is not necessary unless they need new features that are not currently available in their current versions. Perhaps, you could tell us what do you use Acrobat XI or Acrobat Reader for so that somebody else can make a suggestion.
The appropriate forums are at this link:
Hope this helps.

This space is devoted to questions about the Adobe Forum system, not personal computer problems.
That said, some things you can check.
What you're describing sounds like a general problem with your computer.
Follow the steps described by Nancy above, or hire someone to do it for you.
At any rate, it has nothing to do with Reader and you don't need to upgrade it (although you can, if you wish).
Adobe Reader is what you use to open and view a PDF file... it has nothing to do with what you describe
As well as what Nancy said, you may need to search for help articles at Microsoft – Official Home Page
