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 like Notepad.

Step 1:-Go to the installation folder of acrobat reader

(C:\program files\adobe\acrobat\reader\.. whatever)

Step 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


Number 7:-Add Or Stop Programs During Startup

You can start or stop programs from executing at boot up by adding or 

deleting them to/from the run Keys in the Registry.

Windows loads programs to start in the following order; Program listed in the 

Local Machine hive, then the Current User hive, then theWin.ini Run= and 

Load = lines. then finally programs in your Start Up folder.

To add or remove programs in the Registry

Step 1:-Open Regedit (Start-->Run-->regedit)

Step 2:-Go to the desired Key







Step 3:-Add a new String Value and name it anything you like

Step 4:-For the value data, enter the path and executable for the program

you want to run.

By adding the value to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive instead allows the 

program to start only when that user is logged on.

If you add the value to the Run Once key the program will run once and be 

removed from the key by Windows.

Another Way :-Open Start menu>>Run and type msconfig
