Very interesting. Does this happen with all PDF files that you try to open?
My first thought is that it could have something to do with Protected Mode but I don't know enough about how Protected Mode works.
Someone posted earlier about their Adobe Reader freezing up when viewing a file. It froze up after about 10 seconds and could only be closed by terminating the process, possibly the same issue?
Please let us know the version of Adobe Reader installed on your system and the OS that you are working on.
Is your application data folder redirected to a network share? You can check the same by checking the values of the following registry key(s):
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders(Check the values of the keys: AppData, Local AppData, Local Settings etc)
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders(Check the values of the keys: AppData, Local AppData, Local Settings etc)
OS : Windows Seven 64 bits, Ultimate Edition (MSDN Version)
Adobe Reader X 10.1.2 (no update available when I click on "Rechercher les mises-à-jour" (english ~ find updates...)
And I confirm that all keys are on
- Shell Folders : C:\ except 3 on D:\
- User Shell Folders : %USERPROFILE% except 3 on D:\
My USERPROFILE points to C:\Users\Christian
There is no corporate configuration on my laptop, and the \\**\ server I was talking about is used for documents sharing for one of our project, nothing to do with corporate shared folders or anyting else. The sharing is done on ubuntu latest version, with samba.
I'm still thinking that maybe the MRU list is a good start.
If not, I'll try to explain the story behind the file :
The pdf file on the shared folder was generated via the convert utiliity on linux. I was trying to find the good options to use, so I generated about 30 times perhaps this file, with the same name. It is possible that one the generated didn't opened, and maybe reader X remembered that ? or maybe it was too long to open, and I had to kill the process ? I don't remember exactly.
Hope this can help.
