Topic: HELP PLEASE: How do I prevent printing of a PDF? (Via Email)

How do I secure a document in Adobe Acrobat to keep it from being able to be printed and copied?
The directions say to go FILE--->DOCUMENT SECURITY--->(I choose STANDARD for my purposes)---> DISPLAY SETTINGS. So I choose NO PRINTING and also NO COPYING, CHANGING, etc. I hit SAVE. But it still allows me to print the document! What am I doing wrong? Thank you! P.S. I use Acrobat 5.0
I've tried both entering a password and not. Still, no luck.
P.S. I am NOT using READER. I am using Acrobat.
