Remove and re-install the viewer/reader or Acrobat.  Particularly If this is a paid version of Acrobat ... not the free reader... Acrobat installs plug-ins or add-ins for some programs that can sometimes "gum up" the works and cause just the situation you are describing. Also, sometimes the default fonts acrobat uses are not available to the program (these are Helvetica, Times Roman, Courier, etc) and Acrobat has to re-create these with bitmaps. You might also try this free viewer: PDFXchange.  This viewer is noticably "snappier" in all it's functions and has many more functions than Acrobat Reader itself... like the ability to save pdf forms without usage rights enabled. You can get PDF Xchange here: http://www.tracker-software.com/  Hope this helps.
