Quickest method to shut down Acrobat Reader.

A digg article described the quickest method to have Acrobat Reader open up a document without loading all the plugins before start up. Well if you noticed that your system always slows down and takes a long time when you want to close a browser which with a pdf document within, here is a quick method which I found out seems to solve my problem.

1. Press the Ctrl + Alt + Delete buttons together. - This opens up the task manager. 2. Click on the process tab. 3. Select Acrobat32.exe.

4. Click End process.

5. Click Ok to confirm shut down

6. Then close the browser.

This normally shuts down a browser with an open PDF document in less than 5-10sec which is all I am interested in. :)
