Adobe Acrobat 9.0 Pro Freezes (Mac OS 10.7.5)

I am having a problem with Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro, version 9.5.2.

Whenever I open a PDF file, it frequently freezes and I am left

with the twirling color circle. Sometimes (less frequently), the

PDF file opens nicely. However, when I also save any changes

to a PDF file, it will also freeze and I am left with the twirling

color circle. If I wait several minutes sometimes, the twirling

will stop and the software returns to working. I have this

problem regardless of the size of file being either read or



An IT friend has installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled

Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro a couple of times in order to solve

this problme and doing so does not changed anuything.


My computer is a MacPro4,1. It  runs Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5

(11G63). It has a 2 X 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

Processor and 16 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 memory. The

harddrive on which it is installed has 522 GB available.


Best wishes,

    I would suggest you try applying the 9.5.3 update first to see if the behavior improves.


    If it doesn't, you may want to run a Disk Permissions repair from the Disk Utility.
