Every time you run Adobe Acrobat up to 20 plugins are loaded unnecessarily - most users do not need even a fraction of them!

To disable unneeded plugins and make them optional instead, follow these instructions:

1.Install the latest version of Adobe Acrobat - you can get it here

2. Browse to the plugins folder: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\plug_ins

3. Create a new folder named Optional

4. Move all files from the plug_ins folder to Optional, except EWH32.api, print*.api, and Search*.api

Thatís it! Load any PDF in Adobe Acrobat to see the difference!

Update: this method is working for version 8.x as well.
