Adobe Acrobat reader always consumes more memory when it starts. The
reason behind is, it loads all the plugins, even the plugins that you do
not use. This trick is to remove all the plugins from the plugins
directory to elsewhere. Hence, whenever you open Acrobat reader it
directly opens the files without loading any plugins and the speed is just
1. Go to the
installation folder of acrobat reader
(C:\program files\adobe\acrobat\reader\.. whatever)
2. Move all the files and folders from the "plugins" directory to
the "Optional" directory. (I repeat.. cut and paste the files NOT copy &
Also make sure that acrobat reader is not open else it will lock the files
and not allow you to move the files).
Now your acrobat reader will load very fast and almost as good as notepad.
