Because this seems to be an Acrobat problem, not a FM problem, I think
a better source of info may be Adobe's User Forum for Acrobat.
If I was going to dive in and trouble shoot the problem though, I'd
confirm that the PC's video drivers were up to date and that all OS
updates were applied. Then confirm that no other Acrobat odds and ends
were installed, such as the FM distiller. Then, uninstall Acrobat,
reboot, and reinstall.
