Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Acrobat Distiller
  Bjarne Zeb Jørgensen  
Was using almost half of my cpu's resources and wasn't even running any of acrobat's products.
Die Aufforderungen beim Start AcroDistel fehlt, ich solle es erneut installieren, tauchten gleichzeitig mit der Weigerung des Acrobat auf, Word-Dokumente in PDF umzuwandeln. Da hieß es dann immer, das Programm fehlt auf meinem PC
