Some time ago i noticed that when I opened a PDF file, Adobe Reader X stopped responding for sometime. I noticed it happens on Windows 2003, Windows 7 and Windows 2008. after some investigation I found a solution in disabling Adobe’s “new” Protected Mode feature.
- Open Adobe Reader X
- navigate to Edit->Preferences->General
- clear the check-mark at “Enable Protected Mode at startup”
- Click OK to save the changes (acknowledge the warning)
- Shutdown Adobe Reader X
You can also disable protected mode through a registry key
