Adobe Reader X: Freezes for few seconds

I noticed a problem recently where Adobe Reader X freezes when I open a pdf file. It just won’t respond for about a minute or so and then work all right.

After digging around for everything that it is doing at launch, I found a quick solution to the problem.

  1. Go to Edit->Preferences->General
  2. Un-check “Enable Protected Mode at startup”
  3. Click OK to save the changes (acknowledge the warning)
  4. Shutdown Adobe Reader X and Launch again.

The issue should be gone.
