To view my document in LyX (Windows), I click the view button and it compiles a PDF. But it does this by opening multiple (around but not always 5) instances/windows of the same PDF file in Acrobat reader and its really annoying. Does anyone who how to stop this? (Im using MikTex 2.9 if that useful)

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling both LyX and Acrobat reader (I know, obvious suggestion)? Otherwise I'd try resetting your LyX preferences. You might have accidentally messed something up. – Dennis Jan 2 '13 at 20:49
There should also be an »update« button next to the »view« button which shouldn't open the pdf but only update it. – clemens Jan 5 '13 at 22:05
