Topic: My PDF crashes reader

Hello. I have a PDF created from MS Word documents. I've run a pre-flight compatibility check for Acrobat 7, and it checks out. It's about 4 MB, 400 pages, with fast-web-view and password security enabled.

Whenever it is opened, and a certain page is accessed, from any machine, Adobe Reader crashes. Usually, if I disable fast web view, and let the browser load the entire pdf, the problem does not exist. Likewise, if I download the pdf and open it locally, the problem does not exist. It is only if I am browsing it in IE with the Reader plug in.

Can someone point me in the direction of some advice? This happens with several of my PDFs. Sometimes something as simple as shuffling the order of my pages will fix it. Sometimes it doesn't. I'm very frustrated by this, but I don't know enough about PDFs to really troubleshoot it myself.
