Topic: print to Distiller fails to launch Acrobat

I recently had Acrobat 5 installed on my computer, and have noticed a couple of issues. I printed an Excel (2000) worksheet, with filters and a print area set, to the Distiller... The first issue is that I cannot get Distiller to launch Acrobat and show me the file it created, even though I have the option checked to view the PDF after printing. The second issue is that when I went in and manually opened the resulting file, I discovered that it had printed only the formatting (cell borders and shading) and the contents of cells above the filter row, not the data in the filter row or the results rows. When I used the "convert to PDF" toolbar button, the data was included properly, but it still did not launch Acrobat to show me the file. Any ideas how to fix this? Reinstall time?

System info: Acrobat 5.0.1/Distiller 5.0
Win2K Pro SP2, Excel 2000 SR1
