I have CS3. In windows explorer, when I right click on a graphics file such as a .pdf, it now takes a long time to open. Because Adobe prepares a snapshot of that image. But all I really want to do is to rename the file, I don't need to see the image. IS there a way to tell Adobe to stop this?
What does Windows Explorer have to do with Adobe? For the looks of it, your system is ready for a fresh install of OS and programs.
