If your running Windows XP on 256MB of RAM, I suggest you use a program that's lighter on resources, like Foxit PDF Reader.

Although XP will run on 256MB of RAM, it's just barely.
If you want to continue to use Adobe, I suggest you increase your RAM to a minimum of, 512MB.
Since RAM is fairly cheap, I recommend increasing it anyway.
You will notice a significant increase in performance.

You can find that increasing the size of the paging file will solve some issues. Although this is mostly due to low ram. I would say for XP 512 is a min if you wish to run applications. Increasing the ram to 512 will be minimal cost and make sure the machine will run faster and able to run multiple programs at once. To be honest though I personally think they should state with XP to have 1024mb of ram. This is what I think all XP machines should run on to make the full use of its features and programs.

I second the Foxit idea. It's the best thing since sliced bread.
Small, fast, never calls home, no forced updates, just does the job without any of the A-fluff.
