Figured I would open this again since the previous post was marked as answered....and the problem persists.
Acrobat pauses for 30 seconds after I open any pdf. It will bring up the document, but I cannot do anything with it, like zoom, scroll, or even highligh buttons. If I click on anything, the menu bar will white out. After ~30 seconds, the menu bar goes back to normal and everything works perfectly. If I have Acrobat already open and then open a file, I usually do not have this problem. If I open a file holding down the shift key it still pauses. I can create pdf's no problem and have no other errors, just the pause on opening.
I have Acrobat 9 Pro version 9.3.0 and all the updates. I have tried repairing the install. Removing and uninstalling and no change. Running on a Core 2 Duo 2 GHz, 1GB ram, Win XP. No other problems with the computer. This is just really frustrating when opening a lot of files searching for something. Thanks for any help.
No change when "Use 2D Graphics acceleration" checked or unchecked.
I had been using Acrobat 8 Pro and did not have any problems with it.
I am having the exact same issue... it's so frustrating! Does anyone have a solution to this?
Running CS4 on a Core i7 workstation w/ Win 7 64-bit, latest BIOS and video card drivers (ATI Radeon 4890). Acrobat is version 9.3 with all updates. It freezes for 30 seconds just as described, every single time you launch it.
All my drivers are up to date. This does not help the issue.
I know many people who have this issue. Sadly it seems that Adobe is not addressing it.
Acrobat will work for the first number of times you open it after a reboot, but that is it. The rest of the time it pauses. This leads me to believe it is some sort of cache or temporary file issue with Acrobat. I have deleted all Acrobat temp files but that does nothing.
Is your workstation on a network/domain?
Check your default printer driver is not set to a printer that is unreachable.
I had a similar problem with Photoshop when I had inadvertently changed my default driver to a network printer that was not longer available
