I have MS Office XP Pro installed on my laptop and my desktop, both running Windows XP SP1. I installed Acrobat 6.0 Pro and the (.o1 update) on the desktop. I get the Adobe toolbar icons in Word, Excel, ..... When I open a document in Word then select the button to make the pdf, the filename/location window opens, I click the open button, the conversion window comes up and gets started....then everything stops. I have to close the windows and get a Word not responding message window. I end the program.. I have no problem when I use the PDFPrinter method from the print menu to create a pdf... Distiller does okay if I give it a post script file...The scanner option and the html works great too. I tried to reload both Office and Adobe with no help...I've tried turning off my McAfee virus program. I loaded Adobe on the laptop and everything works perfect, but I don't want it on that computer.

I watched the steps on the laptop and I found that after selecting the file name and location on the laptop....it opens the pdfprinter and I get an icon in my taskbar ...then the conversion starts and I get the rotating Adobe icon also ...then the file is made.

With the desktop , it never opens the pdfprinter and never starts the rotating adobe icon...

Both systems have the exact same programs and the same files in the same locations.
ANY IDEAS ???

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
