NJ: Cool Tips (from Slashdot)

Try this, 'tis most excellent! Makes Reader load in 1/2 sec or so, terminates quickly, and hardly ever crashes. It seems it's all those damn stupid bloated plugins causing the problems. To fix:
  1. Install Adobe Reader 6.0 (or 7.0+) and notice where it is installed.
  2. Navigate to that folder in Explorer, locate the plug_ins subfolder and rename this folder to plug_ins_disabled.
  3. Create a new plug_ins folder.
  4. Move the files EWH32.api, printme.api and search.api from plug_ins_disabled to plug_ins.
This fix is also described in MozillaZine.

An even better solution is to uninstall Adobe's Reader, and install FoxIt PDF Reader, which is free.

  1. A fantastic solution for people who require those precious few extra seconds that loading time steals. -)
