the error specifically says-

  the instruction at "0x0045c9e5" referenced memory at "0x01deebdc". the memory could not be "read"

as of yet i have reloaded acrobat 2 time now, and it is completely updated. i have acrobat 7.0 pro.
this specifically comes up when i try to either open ditiller or if i try to convert a word doc to a pdf and it is happenning right when it is building a font table.

thank you

That's odd. Are you sure your memory is good? Are you running into any other application errors? How much memory do you have in this system?
