You are joking? I've just reinstalled Acrobat V4 on my machines because V8 is slow, has a terrible search dialog, and continually "phones home".
The new VoloView and the new Acrobat have been hit by the same virus:

Are people routinely handling files with those sizes? What's driving the file size?

I'm doing all that (but the 3d), and don't get anything near that size on smallish buildings.

Then they don't know how to use AutoCAD properly !!! They need some drawing discipline and training in XREFS
I've done 3D stuff with all that and my files don't come anywhere near 40MB !!!!
Acrobat 7 is very fast.
Version 6 was slower than version 5
I too uninstalled version 8 and went back to 7.
