    "Serious Crashes"

    July 12, 2012  |   By Mike98

    Pros

    Easy to install and easy to uninstall. No hidden adware.

    Cons

    When I opened a .pdf file on my Windows XPSP3 computer, Adobe Reader reported that there was an error occured and needs to close and my computer crashed seriously. I had to use the power on/off button and later my "check disc for errors" program reported that a system error was restored.

    Summary

    Above events were reason enough to uninstall Adobe Reader and to search for a replacement. I am thinking about Foxit Reader, but it has adware in it. Besides I suspect Adobe Reader from causing an error in the Internet Explorer 8, where IE8 also reported that an error has occured and needs to close. For this error I had to use Microsoft System Restore, because I could not visit any website.
