saving memory on your computer

try out pdflite you might like it

you can save up to 100MB if you remove the Adobe reader on your windows 7 computer.

you can then install a program called pdflite which does the same job as Adobe reader


you can get pdflie from www.pdflite.com. by the way it only takes up 33MB of space on your computer.

Also when you download the installer from this website its ready to go

updating Adobe reader requires you to download a 1.0MB file to download the installer.

I live in Ireland and this is a no no! for me because the internet is terrible even if I did buy a static ip address from my internet provider.

bypassing Dhcp server won't solve this.

Not much savings.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / June 28, 2013 3:17 AM PDT

Let's see. An 1TB drive is 99 bucks today (actually much less.) So let's round that to 100 bucks.

So 100MB is about 1 penny of disk space.

Why would I bother for that reason? Wouldn't I choose another such as Foxit, Sumatr Reader or another just to avoid this comic relief noted at https://xkcd.com/1197/ ?

however it means you can internet temporary files at a silly amount of 300MB and growing as the internet in ireland where i live requires this.


and if you can afford in ireland it wouldn't be any harm to have your pc static as well.


this would bypass the Dhcp server and allow you online faster than most using the Dhcp server for internet.


Foxit reader isn't completely free though is it.

I'm using Foxit Reader for free here. Did someone rip you off?

I have seen some of the scams where you can get Foxit's paid PDF editing program "free" for filling out surveys or something like that. They also don't exactly make it easy to find the free reader these days. Of course I recently looked into Ntro PDF and they're even less up front about there being a free version. I couldn't find anything on their site that told you what the differences were between the free reader and the paid version.
