Here's how to do it:

1. Go to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader (replace the C if you installed on another drive, like I did).

2. Create a new folder called plug_ins_disabled.

3. Move all files from the plug_ins folder to the plug_ins_disabled folder except EWH32.api, printme.api, and search.api. There should only be these 3 files in the plug_ins folder.

4. You're done.

UPDATE:

Adobe made a predefined folder for unused plugins, called "Optional" (see the readme file there).

u might want to move all the plug-ins that you want disabled into the "Optional" directory instead of making "plug_ins_disabled". This way the plug-ins will still work, they just won’t be loaded at startup...

So do this instead:

1. Go to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader

3. Move all files from the "plug_ins" folder to the "Optional" folder

3. You're done.

Another way

You can bypass the loading of plug-ins by holding down the
<Shift> key when the Reader starts. The difference in load time would be
amazing.
