    Running Adobe Acrobat 9 pro. Every time I open/close a pdf file, another instance of acrobat.exe appears in the task manager. After several entries, it will not allow me to print a file to pdf until I stop the processes of all acrobat.exe in task manager. It just started doing this about a month ago. I have changed the preferences within the program (edit-preferences-internet - unchecked display PDF in browser, unchecked allow fas web views, unchecked allow speculative downloading). I have a fast paced business and this has slowwwed me down. Hate it. There has to be something i can do. ANY help would be absolutely wonderful :) Thank you!

    One fix I found for that is:

    Uninstall Adobe Acrobat.
    Do not re-install just yet.
    Delete Adobe Acrobat folder in Program Files & any Adobe Acrobat sub-folders inside your user folder.
    Re-install Adobe Acrobat.

    Thanks. I tried that already. It got so frustrating that I just upgraded to the newest version. So far, no problems. I used the programs alot, so I'm sure something got twisted somewhere.
    THANK YOU for responding :)
