Hi

Somewhere I read about "deleting" plugins for AR to make it load faster. This was done by renaming Plugins as Plugins_disabled then creating another Plugins file and copying a coupl of plugins to it. Can any one tell me what needs to be copied as, I can't for the life of me find wher I read it.

Many thanks

Cheers
Grandpa

I have found the following steps:

In Edit-Preferences, do the following:
General tab: turn off “Automatically save document changes”
Internet tab: turn off all three checkboxes
Page Display tab: turn on “CoolType”
Search tab: turn off “Enable fast find”
Startup tab: turn off “Show messages and automatically update”
In View-Toolbars, turn off “Rotate view” and “Search the internet”. Under “Show button labels”, turn them all on so you can figure out what the heck those icons means.
Fire up Windows Explorer and do the following:
Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\
Right-click to create a new subdirectory, and call it plugins_uninstalled
Move all the .api files from the plug_ins subdirectory to your new plugins_uninstalled subdirectory, except for AcroForm.api (for form-filling) and EScript.api (dependency of AcroForm.api).
Finally, go to Start-Run-All Programs-Startup, and right-click and delete the “Adobe Reader Speed Launch” link that Adobe silently added to your startup process.


I hope the above answers your question.
