1. Opens the document
2. Hangs for a couple of seconds*
3. Returns to the document
* By "hangs", I mean the mouse cursor completely disappears and the PC , as if Reader is doing a virus check or something. If ANYTHING happens on the PC during this 2-5 second window, the entire computer freezes and locks up for good, and MUST be turned off and back on - this is frying my hard drives!! I've replaced two already!!
What is Reader doing during this few-second pause? Why can't I use the PC for anything else during this pause, including background tasks? I have to close EVERYTHING else down to open a pdf file, and most of the time that does not even work.
