Yes, I had the same problem last week. I opened a PDF in Acrobat Pro X and, after a few seconds, the acrobat window simply disappeared from my screen. I could not relaunch the software. Our company IT help desk got it going again, but they had no idea what caused the problem.

Sorry I have no tips to offer, but, like Lin, I'd be interested to know if others are having the same issue.

Has anyone else had issues with Acrobat X Pro crashing? Mine seems to crash under two conditions, if I'm working extensively with comments or if I've been making a lot of searches. My warning sign is that things start to disappear from the GUI, usually icons but sometimes text. We're not talking about huge files here, either, maybe a few hundred pages with maybe a few hundred comments.

One of my coworkers says he's been having the same kind of issues, but he's often working in PDFs of a couple thousand pages with a few thousand comments.

Like all writers and office workers, we usually have multiple programs open at the same time, and I'm wondering if this is the problem. Hints or advice welcome!
