The only idea I'd have is to use the latest acroread (7 I think), I 
still have this preliminary version here which appeared a few weeks 
before the official version, and it runs ok. I have to admit, however, 
that I do not use colors on my printers, they're just b/w, but I can see 
pictures, color photos, on screen, and these appear ok.
