  • Foxit Reader closes very slowly

    I use Foxit Reader Version and I am having an issue w/it taking a long time to close - approximately 5-7 seconds. This happens most times I close the reader. Any ideas what could be going on? This has been going on for several weeks.

    Could you please check the option 'Disable connected pdf features' and uncheck 'Show Advertisement' under File ->Preferences ->General in Foxit Reader and see if it makes any differences? Thank you.

      I made the change and I am not noticing any improved performance.

        Please do as follows:

        Go to "Start"->"Run"-> input regedit -> find "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader 9.0" and "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader 9.0" to delete the whole folder of Foxit Reader 9.0;

          Well I hate to be to quick to comment but uninstalling and reinstalling seems to have done the trick. Thank you very much.
