    How to speed up Acrobat reader 6

    http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=11041

    Find the plug_ins folder and rename it plug_ins_disabled
    Create a new folder named plug_ins
    Copy the following files from "plug_ins_disabled" to "plug_ins": EWH32.api, printme.api, and search.api

    Of course this will limit the functionality to viewing non-encrypted pdf files, but that's exactly what I want Acrobat ^B^B^B^B^B Adobe Reader for, 99.9% of the time. You might want to experiment leaving some of the fat in, I mean, .API files, like reflow.api and search5.api (if it's there), and see how it affects functionality and load times.

    Good tip Lynchy...i hate how long Acrobat takes to load! How many plugins do you load with no ill effects?

    Nice thread, i must have missed it in Dec. and seems v1.12 is out too. However, do the Speedup program or the above tweak improve the Full version Acrobat either v5 or v6??
