    Cannot print pdf

      Hi I cannot print any pdf files on my pc. I've tried to print different files to 3 printers and none of them print. I click File - Print, and from there all I get is an egg timer and a not responding warning, I do not even see the print window. I have to go into Task Manager and do an End Task. All none-pdf files print without a problem.

      I've done a repair on the program and even re-installed it from the Adobe website, but still the problem persists. I'm using Adobe Reader version 8.

      Any help would be appreciated thanks..

          Hello, I experienced the same issue with printing a .pdf file and tried same attempts to fix it since I installed Adobe reader 9.
          Moreover, recently I forgot to go into Task Manager and do an End Task of printing and I the print window came out after approx 45 min. I repeated three times successfully the "waiting experience" when printing a .pdf file. It looks like it take simply much too long to open the print window - I do not know how to fix the issue, I have tried to repair as well to re-install Adobe reader 9 and the problem still persist.

          Any help would be appreciated

          Thanks and regards

            You can try to use whe windows printscreen function to print your files if you can't print them directly from adobe reader.

                  What is "Fireworks" and where can I get it and how do I use it???

                  I am also having a printing problem whereas ever since I downloaded
                  Adobe Acrobat-9, I cannot print anything from Adobe. It will display the article that I am trying to print but in a magnified version so as to not be able to view the full document on one page. Also, when I try to print the document and call up the print menu page, it is also magnified so much so that I cannot see the Print button and Adobe will not let me scroll down the Print Screen in order to display the Print button. I have deleated Adobe and reinstalled it, but I still have the same problem.

                  Will "Fireworks" fix this problem????? Otherwise, how do I get around this problem???????

                  Thank you, Rose

                    I am currently testing this with a user.

                    I have tried several printers and reinstalled Adobe several times, suspect profile issue as when I log into her machine it is fine and I can print ok.

                    I will test again with her thi safternoon and recreate her profile and check on if it works.
