Default PDF file lagging system

Occasionally when I load a PDF file, it causes my system to go SUPER slow. My processor load goes up to like 95%. It is not every PDF and the length doesnt matter. The most recent file was only one page. Anyone know anything?

I have the most recent version of Adobe reader. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled. I have even tried older versions. Still same problem.

Is it adobe that is spiking when you open the pdf? Or is it another process?


How many versions of Reader do you have in your "Program Files"?
