Adobe Acrobat Reader - Freezes when I Print

I can't for the life of me print more than the 1st page of this 6 page PDF document I have. I'm using Adobe Reader 8.0, the latest version I know of, and there are no more updates to be installed. Every time I click print and click OK it freezes and crashes when it gets to the point below...

The 1st page spooled and was printed earlier, but immediately crashed Adobe. I can't get any more pages printed at all.

What should I do? Try an older version??

    Okay.... I got impatient and downgraded to 7.0. I clicked Print, OK, then it gave me an error message - "The document could no be printed". My laser printer warmed up, but nothing printed. :confused:

    This is insane! I just downloaded and installed Foxit Reader - another PDF Reader - and it freezes and crashes as soon as I hit OK to print!! Wtf?!!

    I just tried printing another much smaller PDF file, and it printed with no trouble at all. Maybe the PDF I'm trying to print is too complex...? and overloads the programs??

    Can you print only page 1 and then only page 2 and only page 3, etc? Maybe printing each page individually will work.

    I hate Adobe Reader. Piece of crap software! Major memory leaks and many glitches. I like Flash but it also is buggy/leaky (though I guess Macromedia is more to blame than Adobe). I love Adobe products for functionality, but bloat is a big problem for them.

    Uninstall, reinstall. Otherwise, open with Photoshop and print that way.

    Nope - I tried that too. Even printing a single page at a time makes it freeze and crash

    Well It's not just Adobe - its this Foxit Reader also!

    I already tried that - I uninstalled 8.0 and installed 7.0 with the same result.

    Photoshop - I had no idea it would open PDF's. That did it! It printed. Thanks :)
