Try using the Terminal! Type: sips -r 5 --padColor FFFFFF test.pdf Where 5 is the degrees, FFFFFF is for white (the background) and test.pdf is your pdf.

There is also an utility available from Adobe (no, I don't have the link available right now), which does a deep cleaning of everything Acrobat; you might therefore consider running that tool and reinstall Acrobat.

I think CommaToast has the right idea. OS X is probably using a lower quality rendition of the content when scrolling, to ensure that it can move quickly and smoothly, then refining the image once you are done scrolling.
