There's a KB article adressing Adobe Reader crashes/memory issues:

Errors and freezes -- Adobe Reader -- Windows

Different factors can cause system errors, including conflicts among device drivers, software, and hardware, and corrupt elements in specific files. Although a system error may occur only when you work with Adobe Reader, Adobe Reader may not necessarily be the cause--it may be the only application that is memory- or processor-intensive enough to expose the problem.
