adobe reader x latest version locking up when opening pdf file

I installed adobe reader x on a new windows 7 32 bit machine and when i open up a scanned document .pdf  the document will work for like 2 seconds then adobe locks up and stops responding to anything.
How can i fix this? It worked on the old xp machine and it also works on my windows 7 32 bit machine. I tried uninstalling adobe and reinstalling it and still the same problem. after about 2 seconds the document locks up.
Thanks

A quick google search lead me to two possible solutions.

Disable protected mode - Edit > Preferences > General > Uncheck "Enable Protected Mode at start up"

or

Disable hardware rendering for legacy video cards - Edit > Preferences > 3d & Multimedia > Uncheck "Enable hardware rendering for legacy video cards".

http://forums.adobe.com/thread/949508 - One claims that even though he does not have a legacy card this solution worked for him. It appears there are a few other possible solutions in that forum post.

Is the result the same for all scanned doc PDFs?

You need to log into the machine as a differnent user, if the problem still persist then there is a conflict with registery keys, we will get to that in a bit. But if it works fine for the different user then the user profile that is not working correctly has a profile corruption. You have to rebuild the profile. Im going to make the guess that the profile for that user is corrupted.
