Topic: Word to PDF-Slow and files size grows many times?

Hello
We are using Acrobat 6.0 Pro-all recent updates and Word 2003-also all updates on a XP box. When converting a word doc that is around 15 pages mostly text and around 900K to a PDF it takes forever-20 minutes or longer. The resulting PDF is usally 4mb+! I have tried the "reduce file size" function with only a smal reduction in file size. This is a wide psread issue on several machines in the office.
What is really weird is that a fresh install of Acrobat is really fast for a couple of conversions then it just grinds to a halt.
I'm sure it is just a settings issue but have yet to find any direction.
Thanks in advance for your help.
