5.0.5 Takes forever to boot - Adobe Acrobat Windows

All of the sudden, it is taking Acrobat a long time to boot up. It stays on the splash screen for a good two minutes before finally coming up. I am using WinXP Pro. Any ideas?...

    No. Has that been a cause of this problem?

    You may find it informative to launch Distiller from the start menu and see how long it takes to complete the "Building font table..." phase of the launch. I don't know if it's the same process for Acrobat or Reader, but you could try uninstalling every font save the system-required ones and see if your performance improves.

    I know for SURE that fonts can slow Distiller to the point of "failure" in PDFMaker.
