1. When making a PDF from any application, the distiller is launched but the "Save As" window which would normally land on top of the program, does not. I have to click on the task bar / tray icon to bring the window on top. The icon interestingly enough is the blank windows icon that gets used when windows can't find an appropriate icon.
2. More than half the time, the system freezes.
This appears to be related to the firewall / AV suite (Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite) in that if I shut it down, I can eliminate the problem. After closing the suite,m I must go into task manager and shut down the distiller process and then I can try again. Checking the program settings within the firewall, there is no separate line for the distiller process, so I haven't been able to figure out how to clear it.
