“Insufficient data usage” or “Out of memory” errors in Adobe Reader X


When you try and open PDF files in Adobe Reader X, it says “Insufficient data usage” or “Out of memory”.


This is a bug present in an old version of Adobe Reader X.


In Adobe Reader X, on the top menu, click on Help > Check for updates to update to the latest version.


    1. What I do is go to [Internet Explorer – Tools – Manage Add-ons – All Add-ons] and Disable Adobe PDF Reader, so it doesn’t try to open PDFs in Internet Explorer.
      Sometimes it doesn’t show up in that lis, so you need to hunt for it.
