Is this happening for anything you try and print, or just pdf's?

if it is just pdfs, are you opening them direct from your email, or downloading them first, then opening them from the downloaded file?

There is a free alternative to Acrobat Reader called Foxit Reader - you could try installing that and see if it lets you print.
You could try uninstalling and reinstalling it again but remembering to restart your computer in between. (That restart is certainly necessary for problems with other Adobe software, such as Flash Player, so it might well apply here).

However, as Tuvok indicates, there's no need to use the slow, bloated software offered by Adode anyway. (Adobe invented the pdf format but others have vastly improved upon its implementation since then). As Tuvok indicates, Foxit is the most popular alternative and widely recommended. However this is what I use (and can thoroughly recommend):
