This is true, not only for "heavy" adobe stuff mentioned, but also for the simple "acrobat reader". Some part(s) of it run at a very low priority or need very high CPU resources for a short time. In my job I have always many PDF's open on screen (datasheets, etc), and I found out long ago that when I open a second pdf, there is a delay (visible, measurable, sometimes tens of seconds, and never for the first pdf file, but starting from the second, there is a delay, which is constant, does not grow if I open more files) if p95 uses all CPU cores to max. Stopping/pausing p95 for even a second (and starting it back immediately, or not - sometimes I let it off and forget about it for hours) solves the problem, all pdf file open instantly, "exploding" on the screen.
