Recently, I wrote about Foxit Reader, the best PDF reader available. Since Adobe Reader uses lots of system resources, I prefer Foxit Reader over that. As you all know, Foxit Reader comes in two versions, free and a Pro version. A number of additonal features can be enabled in the Pro version.
The mini banner ad, in the top right corner, can be seen in the free version of Foxit Reader. That banner can be removed if you purchase the Pro version. Foxit Reader gives its users the choice to disable this banner from View > uncheck Advertisements. But for some reason, when you start Foxit Reader again, the ad comes back.
How To Remove Banner Ad From Foxit Reader
I have found a trick by which you can remove the banner ad forever! All you have to do is open Foxit Reader and uncheck Advertisement from the View menu. Close Foxit Reader. Again open Foxit Reader, and repeat the above process for about 2-5 times. My banner ad was removed after repeating it for 2 times.

Do let me know if this trick has been useful to you :)
Foxit PDF Reader is a free PDF reader which runs on minimum resources and is only 2.55MB in size, as compared to Adobe Reader (more than 20MB). I have been using this application for quite a while now, and I can proudly say that it’s the best PDF reader! I don’t even remember the last time I installed Adobe Reader. Foxit Reader is itself built with tons of features that you don’t need any other reader along with this one.
The best part is, it does not start at system start-up, nor run any services in the background. This makes this application very lightweight and does not eat system resources. Let’s take a look at some of its features.
