Windows 7: Viewing .pdf files in adobe reader

Viewing .pdf files in adobe reader

I view an e-book in adobe reader, it has 456 pages in it and lots of images and graphics.
When I scroll, resize the adobe reader window it "lags" and becomes slow.
Also when I scroll, there is some noise coming out of my laptop and when I stop scrolling it stops too.

what could be the problem?

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

The "problem" is Adobe Reader !

Try this,

Tracker Software Products :: PDF-XChange Viewer, Free PDF Reader






When installing it, if you check the "extensions" box then a preview handler will be installed for PDF files so that you can also preview them in the Windows Explorer preview pane;

Couple more alternative PDF readers,

Foxit Software - Foxit Reader for Windows (also integrates into Firefox, and IE, which the next one, which is actually my favourite because it's so light weight doesn't)
Free PDF Reader - Sumatra PDF by Krzysztof Kowalczyk

Your specs are fine, you have a 2.3Ghz i5 in there, and Adobe Reader is frankly, a hunk of junk.

I suppose the 2GB of RAM could be letting you down, but if it is, that's again more likely to be Adobe's fault. Sumatra (which I linked to above) has a ridiculously small footprint, it uses by itself next to no memory.

I updated
Why would 2GB of ram be the problem?

i think it's an i3, but it still shouldn't lag badly with a dual core processor.
