Topic: Distiller 5.0 sometimes freezes

Hi. This is my first question and the english is not my
language (I speak spanish), so forgive my errors please.
I have troubles with Distiller 5, because it freezes during the
process. I use ps files created by Quark 3.11. This ps files are
created using the 'save as file' option and the printer ppd is
replaced by Acrobat Distiller ppd. The ps file created is then
located in a watched folder, so Distiller can create the pdf file
automatically. When te distiller process begin I can see a bar
indicating the percentage of process performed. When this
bar reaches the 100% of the distilling process, it turn back to
0% and begin the save and relocate process. In this moment,
sometimes (not always) the process begin inmediatly and
sometimes the distiller 'freezes' during several minutes
(about 3 and 12 minutes). This is happen no mather the file
was in color or black and white, and I can't understand such
behavior of the Distiller, so I hope you can help me to fix that
problem. Thanks a lot.
