  • crash Reader Crashes with the latest Win 7 updates

    Hi. I hope this is the right thread to report this issue. I currently have the latest release of Foxit Reader on a Win 7 64-bit PC. After a Windows update occurred over this past weekend, Reader is consistently crashing. The pdf will open up but if you attempt to scroll down the page it hangs... The exact same thing happened after the previous Win 7 update in the spring. At that time, I downloaded Acrobat as a backup. The issue was resolved after I uninstalled and then reinstalled the latest version of Foxit that was released this past summer. Since the second occurrence, I now have reverted back to using Adobe again. Although I am not without a resolution, I would prefer to use Foxit.
