  • Sorry, but you haven't provided nearly enough information for anyone to attempt answering your questions.

    1) What level of EMET? What EMET Quick Profile setting - Maximum or Recommended. 

    2) What level of Acrobat Reader?

    3) What is the exact error message or symptom?

    4) Is EMET something you installed, or is it installed/mandated by your IT group? If the latter, did they provide a customized profile setting?

    5) What have you tried on your own to solve the problem?

  • My Adobe Reader version 11.0.16 works fine with EMET 5.1 on Win 7 32-bit.  I have all EMET mitigations enabled for it, except for EAF+ and ASR.

    When EMET blocks something, a popup notification shows up in the lower right.  That popup will say which EMET mitigation stopped Reader.  Go back inside EMET and turn off that mitigation for Reader.
