xp machine printing working fine from all other apps, installed latest adobe x but as soon as you select file and print it sits at hour glass. I have a number of printers setup but as it is not getting even to select the printer i am presuming print drivers are not the issue?

try first to uninstall adobe and  then try to print any document  .
then let the printers on
then install adobe again while the printers on
you may also  need to run these commands in CMD

net stop spooler
net start  spooler
