Acrobat XI hogging memory

Da lwiki.

Acrobat XI, for reasons unknown, contains a Messenger service that attempts to sync with an Adobe server and retrieve information.

Should the main Adobe window close *before* a response is received (as it happens sometimes, especially, I guess, in high-traffic hours), the blessed Messenger prevents Adobe from halting and enters a killer loop hogging all the core time it can get its grubby hands on.

Solution: disable messages altogether.

   HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\<VERSION>\IPM\bShowMsgAtLaunch := REG_DWORD(0)
   HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\<VERSION>\IPM\bDontShowMsgWhenViewingDoc := REG_DWORD(1)

Another gem hogging CPU:

   HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\11.0\FeatureLockDown\cWelcomeScreen\bShowWelcomeScreen := REG_DWORD(0)
