    After installing this add-in for adobe Acrobat and checking off to use all of its plug-ins, I went in to Adobe Acrobat 8.0 and found an error message. I want to uninstall Adobe Speedup but cannot find the folder where it is installed as the readme suggests. I have emailed the author but so far no response. Anyone have any suggestion as to what i should due to uninstall this software?

    Very nice speed to adobe wait and read, Adobe should learn by now that perfomance is an issue when expanding software functionality until they realize this , I am using Foxit reader...

    5 for this software , 5 for Foxit , 3 for Adobe reader..

    People, this is not the place to rate the Adobe readers! :-)

    I installed Adobe Reader 8, and found it used a massive amount of RAM. After running ARSU, things are better (and faster).

    Foxit is not a solution for me, for three reasons:

    1. Not ideal font rendering w/ ClearType
    2. Not fast rendering of images
    3. Issues with search

    Adobe Reader - Read: Adobe Waiter - most people use it indeed to read and Adobe made it almost impossible to do so. Use Foxit simply as that. There is no need for a speed up tool ;-)
