Maybe you can use Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) to match only the "Adobe Reader" string (it is at the end of the Window title).

If the process name is the only information you have, then you can use something like this :

$res = _WinGetFromProcess("notepad.exe")
MsgBox(0, "", "Window title for notepad : " & $res)

$res = _WinGetFromProcess("notepad.exe", 1)
MsgBox(0, "", "Window handle for notepad : " & $res)

; Returns the Windows Title or Handle, from a Process name or PID
; Process : ProcessName or PID
; iFlag : 0 = returns the title
;         1 = returns the handle
Func _WinGetFromProcess($Process, $iFlag = 0)
    Local $aProcessList = ProcessList($Process)
    Local $aWinList = WinList()

    For $i = 1 To $aWinList[0][0]
        If $aWinList[$i][0] <> "" And BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$i][1]), 2) Then
            $iPid = WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1])
            For $j = 1 To $aProcessList[0][0]
                If $aProcessList[$j][0] = $iPid OR $aProcessList[$j][1]= $iPid Then
                    If $iFlag Then
                        Return $aWinList[$i][1]
                        Return $aWinList[$i][0]
    Return 0
