Speeding up opening of Acrobat Reader

Whenever you launch acrobat reader, it takes some extra times while loading the plugins and we rarely use those plugins(In fact, I rarely use them) so we can speed up the opening of acrobat reader.

The trick in speeding up the process of opening acrobat reader is by removing the plugins from plugins folder and putting them in the folder called optional. First, go to the acrobat reader installation directory which will be probably located somewhere at

C:\program files\adobe\

There, you will see the folder called plugins. What you have to do is cut and paste all the items from plugins folder to optional folder. Make sure that you are not locking any of those files by opening the acrobat reader while doing cut/paste. Hope this helps you. :)
