Topic: why does it open the viewer?

I am writing a program that opens an existing PDF file, optimizes it, saves it and closes it.  This program is a dll that I call from an ASP page.

Anyway, something peculiar is happening and I don't know why.  The first time this is called, everything works like a charm.  The second time through, however, it opens an Acrobat Reader window and displays an error message saying it can't open the requested file.

Part of the code looks like this:

Dim Exch As Acrobat.CAcroApp
Dim PDDoc As Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc
Dim AVDoc As Acrobat.CAcroAVDoc

Set Exch = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")
Set AVDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")
Set PDDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")

On the second time through, when it executes 
"Set Exch = Create...", it opens the Reader window.  Why does it do this?  I exit the application and kill all objects at the end of this procedure.  Can anyone help me out?
