Re: Adobe Acrobat stardand 6.0 keeps on freezing up when...

My first suggestion is to print the document, but instead of using a printer, select, "Adobe PDF," for the output. If you've never done that, you find it by clicking: 'File,' and then, "Print..." and then open the scroll box which shows your default printer.

As far as updates go, you need to update as a habit. I have my Adobe Updater set to update all my Adobe software once a week. Under your 'Help' menu, select the choice for updates (my version: Acrobat 8.0 Professional says: Search for Updates) and download and install any and all updates suggested. Repeat this action until it replies: "No updates found."

You may need to increase the size of your computer's memory or at least allow Windows to use part of your HDD as memory. If that doesn't help, you might need to 'downsize' your graphics in your PowerPoint file. I've found many people's problems with PowerPoint slideshows acting up have been due to having pictures of several different formats and most often pictures which are way too large. If you change the embedded graphics to JPEG's and make them as small as possible (without making them too grainy) and save your presentation with only JPEG's that have been downsized, you may find that you can make a PDF out of the file.

I am not 100% certain but I am not sure you can use that old a Adobe version with Win 7. The current Adobe Pro for creating .pdf files is now version 9 for Win 7. That may be part of your problem. Consult the Adobe website and see if that older version will even run in Win 7

What is acrobat reader?

Adobe Acrobat is a family of computer programs developed by Adobe Systems, designed to view, create, manipulate and manage files in Adobe's

Plug-in from Adobe. It reads documents in PDF format on any platform.

A program from Adobe that lets you capture a document and then view it in its original format and appearance

Adobe has changed the names of the products in the Acrobat family regularly, also splitting-up, joining, or discontinuing products. Between version 3 and 5, Standard and Professional versions were one product simply called Adobe Acrobat.
As of October 2009[update], the current main members of the Adobe Acrobat family are:
64px-adobe_reader.svg.png magnify-clip.pngAdobe Reader 8/9 Icon
  • Adobe Reader 9 (Windows, Mac and Unix)
  • Adobe Acrobat 9 (Windows & Mac only; no Unix version)
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended (includes Adobe Presenter)

The latest version
Version 9.0 Adobe Acrobat 9.0 was released July 2008:[10][11]
  • PDF version 1.7 (and prior) supported. There are Adobe extensions to PDF 1.7 for Acrobat 9.
  • Product Family includes: Acrobat Standard 9 (Windows only), Acrobat Pro 9, Acrobat Pro Extended 9 (Windows only).
  • Pro Extended Version includes Adobe Presenter and the features of Acrobat 3D.
  • The ability to create Acroforms was restored to Acrobat Standard in this release (in versions 6 through 8, Acrobat Professional was required).
  • Enable real-time collaboration of PDFs with synchronized document views and chat.
  • Improved Web Capture for capturing entire web pages or just some parts into PDF.
  • Integration with to enable storage and sharing of PDF files.
  • Personalize a PDF Portfolio with customizable templates for navigation and branding.
  • Compare and highlight the differences between two versions of a PDF document.
  • Insert FLV (Flash) or H.264 video for direct playback in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader.
  • Convert a variety of video formats to FLV for playback in PDF.
  • Create PDF maps by importing geospatial files that retain metadata and coordinates.
  • OCR PDFs (Paper Capture) using ClearScan. Adobe ClearScan technology creates custom Type1-CID fonts to match the visual appearance of a scanned document after optical character recognition (OCR). ClearScan does not replace the fonts with your system fonts or substitute them by Type1-MM (as in Acrobat 8 and earlier versions), but uses these newly created custom fonts. The custom fonts are embedded in the PDF file (this is obviously mandatory). If the OCR does not recognize a word with enough confidence, then the image (bitmap) of the word is shown in the PDF and the text is put above but hidden (same as what is made in "Searchable Image" mode).
  • Adobe Reader 9 drops support for Adobe Reader Extensions 5 and 6 which permit Adobe Reader client software to save changes to filled-in forms in PDFs. Adobe Reader Extensions 6.1 and newer are still supported. Legacy PDFs will still be viewable, however they will open with the warning "This document enables Reader capabilities that are no longer enabled in this Reader version."[12]
  • On March 10, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1 was released which addresses a number of customer workflow issues and a critical security vulnerability while providing more stability.[13]
  • On May 12, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[14]
  • On June 9, 2009, update version 9.1.2 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[15]
  • On July 31, 2009, update version 9.1.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[16]
  • On October 14, 2009, Adobe Acrobat 9.2 was released (added support for Windows 7 x86/x64 and fixed many security issues).[17]
  • On January 12, 2010, Adobe Reader 9.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[18]
  • On February 16, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[19]
  • On April 13, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.2 was released which addresses several critical security vulnerabilities.[20]

Cannot Create PDF from Word Document Using Adobe Professional 6.0

You can try to create PDF file directly from Microsoft Word. Adobe Acrobat Professional installs a virtual printer on your computer. Print the document from Microsoft Word, but make sure you select appropriate printer from the list. It should be called "Adobe Acrobat PDF Printer", or similar.
