Hi Michel, thanks for your great program! You're the best!

I post this tip here, because all PDF ReDirect's users use logically Adobe Acrobat Reader 6 ;-)

So if you want to Acrobat Reader 6 load faster, follow these steps below:
http://dotnetjunkies.com/WebLog/darrell.norton/archive/2003/10/06/2095.aspx

Resume:

- Move all your plugins and sub-folders from the folder "plug_ins"
        by default: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\plug_ins
into the folder "optional"
        by default: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\Optional


- Except the important plugins, described below, in the folder "plug_ins":
        - EScript.api & EScript.FRA (fra is for French version, maybe it's US for you)
        - EWH32.api & EWH32.FRA
        - reflow.api & reflow.FRA
        - Search.api & Search.FRA
        - weblink.api & weblink.FRA

- Disable the splash screen and here we go! Even faster than Acrobat Reader 5.1!

Thanks for tip!

Apparently, we are not the only one having difficulties with the long load times of the latest (v6.0) Reader from Adobe. PC Magazine Editor John Dvorak also complains about the long load times in his column here:
