Alfresco getting stoped while accesing pdf files from document libary

We have an Alfresco Community edition , version 3.4 installed on a Windows 2008 server. We are using this alfresco as our DMS. Yesterday we found some unusual issue in alfresco.
After login, we go for a particular site, select Document Libary, change folder , select PDF at that time alfresco got stopped. We tried to access the docs and xls files in the same site, but no issues, also we checked some other PDFs in other sites no issues.

Solution :
1. In Alfresco server we installed Open Office.
2. Stop Alfresco
3. C:\Alfresco\tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\lib i have updated fontbox-1.5.0.jar and pdfbox-1.5.0.jar from http://archive.apache.org/dist/pdfbox/ and http://archive.apache.org/dist/pdfbox/1.5.0/
(Old versions in the system are pdfbox-1.2.1.jar and pdfbox-1.2.1.jar)
4. Start Alfresco

Checked the document library, pdf and everything is working fine.
I spend 6 hours for fixing this issue.
