CoolPdfReader v3.5.0.550, a commendably compact (3Mb) PDF utility,
unfortunately creates about 16 objectionable registry entries,
instead of a distinct settings file...:-(

Redeeming feature:
It does print PDF docs without fuss (under XP yet...),
an elementary operation my currently installed Adobe Reader XI v11.0.18 stubbornly refuses to perform

This PDF reader is of very poor quality and besides it shows ads it has a nag screen on program's exit ("Do you need...", "Do you want...", etc).

This is rubbish! you can't drag and drop pdf files on it, It didn't work on the file i tried, and the UI is just disgusting

This pdf-viewer is buggy. The letters are mixed up!

You can capture everything on ur screen by pressing the 'Print Screen' button and pasting into whatever app u want. U can also capture the current active window by pressing Alt-PrintScreen.:)

WAK199 Actually you can use PDF XChange Viewer, which is on this site, to convert all pages in a PDF to an image file.

WAK199: What I have found useful is the option to save the PDF file as a jpeg or bitmap file. Although the resolution is low, the coverted file is usable. I have not found any other freeware applications to do this.

You can capture whatever you can see on the screen with the freeware Fast stone capture program and convert it into Jpeg

Although small but not so usefull;slow in comparison to Foxit and Adobe Reader;doesnot remember settings ,hence new file is opened from the same place where old file was closed
