    Adobe Acrobat seems to auto creat a "my ebook" folder in my documents everytime it starts up... Is there anyway to prevent this???

    Do you have reader, or the full program?

    This is apparently something new with Acrobat Reader 6. I get the same thing.

    Hiya

    Go to Windows Explorer, then navigate to the Plugins folder. Usually,

    C:\program Files\Adobe\Acrobat\Reader\plug_ins

    And look for the eBooks.api

    If you delete this, then the eBooks folder won't be put back in. or, if you're uncertain, just rename it to eBooks.old, by rightclicking and choosing Rename.

    Regards

    Removing or changing the name of that folder will stop you from using the web services feature. The folder takes up 0 bytes, so I don't see what the problem is :confused:
