Why Acrobat may quit unexpectedly and how to fix it?

Sometimes you might get a prompt that "The Acrobat has unexpectedly quit". There are many reasons that may cause this and also there are multiple fixes, one of which might work for you.

The very first reason is Mac OS X is designed in such a way that all the application should ideally be in Applications folder, if in case it is not, then, it might try to play with you.
1. So if the application is installed anywhere else apart from Applications folder, then uninstall it using uninstaller found in /Applications/Utilities/Adobe Installers.
2. Then reinstall it and make sure it is installed in Applications folder.

If Adobe Acrobat is crashing, start troubleshooting from this step and proceed to other ones.
