adobe reader sits on hour glass when asked to print

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 to reinstall the printer drivers
if that's doesn't solve it  then uninstall  adobe ,  make sure sure the printer is on

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

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
