If you find Adobe Reader 6.0 takes a long time to load, this clever little freeware program is just what you need. I quote from the developer's site:
http://www.tnk-bootblock.co.uk/prods/misc/index.php

Adobe Reader SpeedUp is a simple application that was created to help make the loading time of Adobe's Adobe Reader software bearable for everyday use. AR SpeedUp only needs to be used once (a process taking only a few seconds) and then your 'Reader will be transformed forever.

Is it worth to upgrade from 5 Dec 23, 2003

I only have Acrobat 5.0. Every time the program wants me to upgrade I deny. What has version 6 to offer? Is it much slower than 5?

More information Dec 24, 2003

Interesting. From what I understand, the program disables some rarely used plugins. More information about speeding up Adobe Reader:

Heinrich - you can disable the AutoUpdate dialog completely: Edit - Preferences - Update.

With 5.0 I am having trouble referencing unembedded fonts that I know exist on my system. Frustated by the troubleshooting instructions, I decided to see if 6.0 has features that solve those problems. Instead, I found that I can try 6.0 professional for 30 days free. So I downloaded it and so far I am afraid that I am impressed. I might end up going for the upgrade after the 30-day period.

For one thing, the Arabic licensed fonts on my system that cannot be embedded are substituted correctly when viewing. I also tried the pre-flight feature, which analyzes your PDF and tells you of potential problems. I was impressed by this too.

I have only downloaded it several hours ago, so I cannot tell you much more for now. Note though that this an upgrade from 5.0 standard to 6.0 pro. I do not know what new features I have are due to the 5->6 upgrade, and what are due standard->pro.

HTH.
