I have Adob Acrobat X Pro running on Windows 7, 64 bit. Every time I open a pdf document and try to use the typewriter function by creating a text box, Acrobat freezes up and crashes. A popup window appears with "Adobe Acrobat Pro: acrobat.exe - Bad Image" in the window title. Inside the popup window it says:


"C:\Windows\system32/ATMLIB.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."


I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software from the original CD, but I still get the same error message. Can anyone help?






I also cannot open any form PDF files without getting the same message, except in the window title it says "Font Capture: Acrobat.exe - Bad Image".


Can someone please HELP? This is driving me crazy.

I have the same problem.  Have tried many things.  Have you been able to fix it?
