          Hi gamebox,
          Please go under "File"->"Preferences"->"Foxit Cloud" to see if "Automatically upload files to Foxit Cloud when they are opened in Foxit Reader" is unchecked.

              since yesterday I have the same problem. After about
              5 seconds FR freezes. You can't do anything. It doesn't
              matter what you are doing at the time when it freezes.

              - my system is Windows 7 Pro x64
              - FR is
              - I don't use Foxit Cloud. I always uninstall it.

              Thanks for your efforts in advance!

              I have finally found, why FR freezes.

              Foxit Cloud hasn't properly been uninstalled
              so that it was already running, although I thought
              it was gone. After uninstalling Foxit Cloud properly
              it seems that FR doesn't freeze anymore.

              So the solution for me was to uninstall Foxit Cloud.

              Note: You have to shut down FR before you uninstall
              Foxit Cloud.

              Yours sincerely

                      Hi lordapofis,

                      Could you please try to uninstall your existing Foxit Reader from "Control Panel"->"Programs and Features"? Then download a new setup of Foxit Reader 7.1.3 from Foxit website to install and see if the re-installation helps? The download link:

                      Thank you.
