Print to PDF - Frequently having to turn off option "Rely on system fonts only".

I currently run on:

ArcGIS 10 - ArcView
Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard

When I try to Print to PDF in ArcMap, the default options cause this error to prompt:

When you create a PostScript file you must rely on system fonts and use document fonts.
Please go to the printer properties, "Adobe PDF Settings" page and turn OFF the option "Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts."

The figure will not Print to PDF until I go into the preferences to uncheck the option as instructed.
It seems this issue has occurred with all existing MXDs that I have worked on in 9.3.1, I don't recall this "Rely on system fonts only" option in 9.3.1, and I definitely don't recall getting prompted [halted] with this error.

Anyone know how to stop ArcMap from prompting this error or to automatically have all mxd files to have this option "unchecked"?

Any help is appreciated. Please reply if you also have encountered this issue.

Thank you!
