Its for reading PDF files. a type of compressed Document file that can contain Images and text. Kind of an industry standard.

It is a large file however it shouldnt be slowing your computer. It shouldnt be running unless you are trying to open a PDF file.
Do yourun any adware/spyware sweepers?
That is most likely why your computer is slowing.
