Well e-books have become an integral part of our daily life and most of them are in .pdf format.
.pdf files are opened and read using Adobe Reader. It is a very good software except the fact that it is extremely slow. I ( http://learnhacking.in) was looking for a solution for the problem ie.. to make Adobe Reader Faster and came up with a pretty simple solution.
Note:- I tried this trick on Adobe reader 9.0 ( but it works with older versions as well)
1) Go to the installation folder of acrobat reader
(C:\\program files\\adobe\\reader9.0\\reader\\.. whatever)
2) Move all the files and folders from the “plug_ins” directory to the “Optional” directory. (I repeat.. cut and paste the files NOT copy & paste). Also make sure that acrobat reader is not open else it will lock the files and not allow you to move the files).
The Reader may configure itself once again for the first time you open it. It will just restore the most important files back to “plug_ins” folder.
Now your acrobat reader will load very fast
and almost as good as notepad.
