    Yes, AR Speed-Up includes a text file that describes each plugin. You get to decide which plugins are kept and which are disabled; the disabled ones are moved to a separate directory and can be restored either by AR Speed-Up or yourself at any time. The program also includes a couple of tweaks, including disabling the Adobe splash screen and unregistering the wisptis.exe background service. It truly is a handy little app.

    To save looking, leave "EWH32" "printme" and "search" in plugins folder and move others to a newly opened folder called "plugins disabled"
    Acrobat then opens in a third of the time or so.

    I think this proggy has been posted in the news/software news section numerous times in the past. Surprised the Mods/Admin haven't put a section to archive these useful links.
