any ideas?

If you're opening a pdf in Adobe Reader using it's browser plugin and you're on broadband bump the internet speed setting to 1.5 mbs in the reader prefs. I had a problem with Adobe Reader 7 where it would freeze when loading a pdf using the browser plugin. I would begin to scroll down the page and it would lock whatever browser I was using because it was not downloading fast enough. My internet connection speed was defaulted at 56kbs(i'm on broadband) under the prefs. Once I bumped it up, it never locked again.
