Ever haited waiting for adobe reader to load up fear no more, i found this on betanews.com its tiny, worth a try

Adobe Reader Speed-Up significantly decreases the amount of time required for Adobe Reader 6.0 to start by disabling most of the least used plugins. Plugins can be freely enabled and disabled, if required.

Currently supports free and full versions of Adobe Acrobat v3.0, v4.0, v4.0.5, v5.0, v5.0 CE, v5.1, v5.5, and Adobe Reader v6.0 and v6.0.1.

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
