Adobe PDF convertor problem

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit in an office environment. Client prints several document per day to the printer called "Adobe PDF converter" from her devices and printers. The initial problem was her default printer would revert to the Adobe PDF converter every time she rebooted. I got that problem resolved but now when she prints to the Adobe PDF converter it takes hours to print one document and trying to delete the print job also takes hours. These are small one-page documents. Also, She can print to a pdf  and it seems to work (eventually) BUT she can’t delete it, override it or  change it. It says the document is in use by another application or process. She don’t have the file open, it is on her local hard drive and is not shared so I’m not sure what is happening.
Please advise on what I need to do to get these documents to print to the Adobe PDF converter faster and to allow editing without giving me the error message about the document being in use.

Thank you!

Hi Robert,

The Adobe PDF print driver is installed as part of the Adobe Acrobat installation. It sounds as if something may be corrupted in the Acrobat environment. I recommend doing a Repair install, as follows:

Control Panel
Programs and Features
Adobe Acrobat

Finish the wizard. Btw, what version of Acrobat does she have? Regards, Joe

Also, is the version of Adobe up to date? You need at least Adobe V11 to have a reliable PDF Maker function.
