Appears like there is a memory leak in Adobe reader 9.3.0 on Windows Vista. When I open a large document (>36MB) Adobe starts hogging memory - over 1.4GB - and choking the PC) and then it hangs the computer. As soon as adobe is killed (the Program i.e. AcreRd32.exe not the Application i.e. the pdf document), the memory gets freed up and choking is gone. Anyone else noticed this - any fixes from Adobe for this - becoming a pain to live with. The earlier version was far better - didn't cause these issues. This issue has started after I installed the latest update as prompted by Adobe.
Should have been memory leak - not "lead"!
