That's what I did.  Installed acroread 9, printing slowed way down.
Re-installed acroread 8, everything went back to normal.

Google found me a few mentions of (apparently) the Windows acroread 9 doing the
same thing, so I guess it's a common problem.  Meanwhile,  acroread 8 will
continue to live on that machine.  I didn't notice any improvement in acroread
9 that mattered to me, anyway.

It's a HP Laserjet 5100 that we use to create plates for a printing press, so
it gets used a lot and is fairly critical to the printer's business
operations.  Having it slow down that much really held up production.
