Thanks to Jackie Johnson, I was able to fix my issue with Adobe Acrobat closing. I had checked the FLEXnet Licensing Service and tried to start it. It kept giving an "Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified." error. Google gave me Jackie Johnson and problem fixed.

I had made some changes to my registry and disabled few software using a third-party registry editor/manager and had forgot about what I did. So, a not to self is - don't disable software in the registry... Below is a copy of the post:

SOLVED!

the problem was the FLEXnet service that wasn't up and running. why?

ran services.msc, looked for flexnet and noticed that the process path had a minus (-) in front of it, e.g.:

-"C:\Programs..."

(strange is it?)

all i did was running regedit and looking for the string: -"C:\
found one, removed the minus, closed regedit.

ran again services.msc and started the flexnet service.
NO MORE 10SEC CRASHES!

tell if it worked for you too!
