Change the resolution from custom to system.

In Acrobat:

1) Click "Adobe Reader/Acrobat Pro" at the top left for the pull down menu.

2) Click "Preferences"

3) Click on "Page Display"

4) Find the "Resolution" area and select "Use system setting:" instead of "Custom Resolution"

Custom Resolution is default and not as high as the system.
