give adobe acrobat the old nip/tuck

It's about time a solution has been found to address the slowest loading plugin in existence: Adobe Acrobat Reader.

How to use liposuction to repair Adobe [Acrobat] Reader 6
Fernando Cassia, The Inquirer

Install Adobe Reader 6 :)
Open the "x:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader" folder, where x is the right drive letter.
Find the plug_ins folder and rename it plug_ins_disabled
Create a new folder named plug_ins
Copy the following files from "plug_ins_disabled" to "plug_ins": EWH32.api, printme.api, and search.api

In following the steps outlined above, I've now found Acrobat Reader to load exceptionally faster. Try it out. You've got nothing to lose (and instead plenty of time to gain).
