    We encountered several cases where AutoCAD freezes or opens multiple times
    (one time for every drawing).

    The solution of AutoDESK is the change a setting in Internet Explorer which
    lowers! the security level in Internet Explorer. By switching the option
    "Publisher's Certificate Revocation option" off, visiting SSL websites with
    redrawn certificates will no longer warn you.

    That raises the risk on surfing the internet while phising sites are more
    and more common place using false, older or stolen certificates.

    Personaly i consider this as a serious problem.

    Please AutoDESK correct this problem asap as your solution can only be noted
    as temporaly.

    In some cases, AutoCAD 2005, AutoCAD 2006 and AutoCAD 2007 or verticals on
    isolated networks freeze when they are launched. This issue usually occurs
    after the AutoCAD screen has been painted, but before any tool palettes are


    To correct this issue, you will need to edit your Internet Options.

    from the Internet could pose a security risk.

    2.. In Control Panel, double-click Internet Options.
    3.. In the Internet Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
    4.. On the Advanced tab, under Settings, locate the Security section.
    5.. Under Security, clear the Publisher's Certificate Revocation option.
    6.. Click Apply, and then click OK
    7.. Reboot your computer, and then run the application.

    Not a problem if you don't use IE...

    If AutoCad is opening one copy for each drawing, change your SDI
    setting (Single Document Interface) to "0". That should solve the
    multiple instances, the freezing is another matter entirely.
