100% CPU Utilization Problem
Some of our users have reported a 100% CPU utilization problem while using Adobe Reader 8.x for Unix platforms. This has been discussed on the user-to-user forums post but unfortunately we are unable to replicate this issue locally. Some of the users have reported that this problem seems to go away if you set the proxy in Preferences->Internet to “Manual Proxy Configuration” and enter the proxy server and associated port #, then exit Acroread and restart.
I would request all those users who have faced this issue to post comments on how they reproduced the problem and give some information on their OS/distribution, etc. to help us isolate the issue. Thanks for your continuous feedback and comments!
