Topic: taking forever to create a pdf from MS Word

Howdy all,
First time posting here - I'm trying to research an issue one of our end users is experiencing w/ Adobe and/or Word.

User has Adobe 6.0.3 and Microsoft Office 2003. Not sure if EU has all the MS office and Adobe updates installed.

In the EU's own words:

When I try to convert Word files to pdfs, the process is - literally – endless. The system does not freeze, it just takes up to 30 hours to produce a single page… The problem does not happen when converting other Adobe files (eg. Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) or other MS Office files.

I'm doing some basic troubleshooting, like running 'detect & repair' for MS Word, will have him check for Adobe updates, but wondering if there's any other troubleshooting suggestions out there I could try.

Thanks in advance,

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

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.
