? Are you running the Acroreader as a plugin inside the browser window, or in a separate window by itself? under Windows? Linux? Solaris? MacOS? with MSIE? Netscape? Mozilla? Konqueror? Opera?
On the PC's I have observed running MSIE under Windows of various flavors where the Acroreader is a plugin inside the browser, indeed the AcroRd32 process does keep running for a while after a browser is closed, so that it is quicker to start the next time it is used to display another PDF. The new plugin in a new window should just run OK from the existing AcroRd32 process, quicker than if it had to start a whole new process.
But (e.g. in Linux, or with the Acroreader running as an external "helper" window outside the browser, as in Netscape, Opera etc.) I am not sure.
