Topic: Wrong Color Output from Acrobat 7.05

I installed Acrobat 7 Standard last week. I've updated to 7.05. It seems that all PDFs that I open and print on my HP 4500 N printer have inverted colors on graphics.

For example, I have a PDF that I created that has a large yellow and red graphic. The source document is a Word doc, and when I print directly from Word to the color printer, everything looks fine. When I create the PDF via either Save to PDF or print to the Acrobat PDF driver in Word, the resulting PDF looks fine in Acrobat 7. But when I print it, the reds turn to a dark blue, and the yellows turn to a light blue.

The strange thing, however, is that other people (who only have Acrobat Reader) can print this PDF to the same printer, and the colors are correct.

I've tried reinstalling Acrobat completely, but still no dice. Does anyone have any idea on what's happening here?
