1.0 out of 5 stars More buggy bloatware from Adobe! August 7, 2008
Acrobat 8 has never integrated with Office 2007, or worked right with my scanner, so I foolishly bought Acrobat 9 in the hope it would be an improvement. It's not.

It seems Adobe simply focused on jamming more features into an already bloated and buggy application making things even worse. The office 2007 integration *still* does not work--even after spending hours trying the suggested solutions from Adobe. Beware, even for this $300 product, Adobe CHARGES for any phone support beyond basic installation help.

In addition to not working with Office 2007, Acrobat 9 is slow, throws up frequent error messages, and leaves part of itself running even after you shut it down which keeps Windows from shutting down without clicking past an "Acrobat has stopped responding" message. I also had trouble with Adobe's finicky product activation.

Memo to Adobe: More features are useless if the basics don't work reliably. People don't want products that take 20 minutes to install, forever to load, require hours of searching for and trying various support solutions to no avail, throw up frequent error messages, etc.

Someone else needs to come along (Google are you listening?) and derail Adobe's PDF train with a simple, reliable product that's more like Acrobat used to be in the old days (say version 5). For the 3% of the PDF users who actually *need* all the extra obscure publishing features, they can still buy Adobe's buggy bloatware. The rest of us just want reliable basic PDF support that works with the current applications and standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars First worthy upgrade since version 5.0 August 24, 2008
I've been using Adobe Acrobat for many years - basically couldn't live without it since I deliver 99% of my work to clients in PDF format. Version 5 has been great - stable, fast, does the job. Every time a new version is released I try it out. Version 6 was horrid and a crash-fest. Version 7 was a bit better, but slow and bloated. Version 8 was OK, but did not see a compelling reason to change from v5. Version 9 is the first time I've been willing to shell out more bucks. After a using it for about a month, I'm very happy I did.

One of my main uses for Adobe is creating PDF forms. Version 9 is the first time that you can set up a form that can be saved to disk by a user, provided he/she is using version 8 or above of the reader. Finally!! Granted, this feature should have been implemented years ago, but appreciate that it is finally here. The form wizard actually works in this version - saves lots of time in setup.

Creating PDFs is speedy and works well from every application I've used (WordPerfect, Word, Excel, several others). I always use the Distiller to create a PDF - print to disk as a PS file, then run it through the Distiller. Takes one extra step (versus using the create PDF button that is enabled in some apps) but it works 100% of the time, and allows you to tweak how the PDF is created.

I'm a bit miffed that I did not qualify for the upgrade price - you need version 6 or later, and I'm using 5. I think some type of discount should have been offered, or at least a free training book.

Installation is straightforward. Be sure to remove Version 5 from your PC before you install version 9. It should do it for you, but the process runs best if you remove it first, then do a clean install of v9.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Buy This Product - A Nightmare! April 15, 2009
I purchased Adobe Acrobat 6 a while back and it never worked (creating a PDF file) on my Windows XP system. I recently purchased a new laptop with Vista and I thought I would give version 9 a try. What a mistake. First the program worked fine, then Adobe sent a 9.1 release and ever since then it messed-up my whole computer. Every time now I right-click on any Icon on my computer, an Adobe Acrobat installer dialog box pops-up and acts like it's trying to re-install the program.

If I open the program and try to make a PDF of the file, it says of any file type that it is unrecognized. Also, every time I start-up or reboot my computer, once the computer starts up it says that the computer needs to be re-booted again so the 'upgrade' can take effect. I just click no, but even after removing this software and apply Norton System Works and System Mechanic 8 to clean up the registry, that re-boot pop-up is still there. I've now have two bad experiences with this program in two different versions.

I also get the dreaded dialog box on right-click: "Please wait while windows configures adobe acrobat 9" If you Google this you'll see over 194,000 people have Googled in an attempt to solve this problem. And there is no solution only outrage and frustration from people on the internet

Customer service with Adobe is bait and switch. You'll never get an answer. The only time I got a response from them was to say that it's Window's fault and there's nothing they can do about it.

I urge you to buy a competitor's PDF creation software. They fooled me twice, so shame on me.

I recently heard about and downloaded the free Foxit Reader 3.0 and PrimoPDF, to use instead of Acrobat Reader and Adobe Acrobat respectively.

Wow, wow, wow.

Those two freeware programs take up so much fewer system resources while performing 95% of the same functions, for FREE!

Reader 9.0 has especially become a bloated monster, and with it gone I noticed a substantial speed improvement with Firefox. Overall my Windows XP Professional system is now much more stable, and faster as well. It's almost as huge an improvement as I got when I removed all the Norton software, even.
