Do you trust the source of the PDF? Sometimes infected PDFs will crash Acrobat when they try to infect your PC. Otherwise, try downloading it to your PC first, then open it.

Microsoft will blame Adobe, and vice versa. You might solve this issue by using an alternative free PDF reader such as Foxit Reader or eXPert PDF Reader.
