    We have a new HP 4250tn with 192mb It prints PDF files much slower than word or excel docs. It prints fine on a HP 8000

    Hi,

    What version of Adobe Acrobat

    What O/S.

    If you are running Windows XP you need to upgrade to at least 256mb preferably 512mb

    Hi,

    Acrobat 6 is a resource hog, I've not even looked at v 7 yet.

    I had numerous printing problems with it on my work p.c.. I eventually mamaged to go back down to version 5.05, the last version before v6 and have had no further problems.

    Try using Acrobat 5.05

    Ceri Sheeran is correct

    The newer version is supposed to fix this problem because it does not load all of the add-ons, most of which you will never ever use.

    As an alternative, to here http://www.tnk-bootblock.co.uk/prods/misc/ to get a neat little utility (first on the list), that works very well.
