    Is From DocToPDF Internet Explorer toolbar useful?

    Does anyone ever use the From DocToPDF Internet Explorer Toolbar?
    Is it useful? How often do you use it? Or, should it be permanently removed?

    I personally do NOT like the clutter it brings, but just wondering if I need to leave it there in case I have a need for it.
    Of course, I could always check off the Toolbar box for it if I ever needed it & that would bring it back.

    Any BHO (Browser Helper Object) is going to affect the time that Internet Explorer takes to startup. If you don't use From DocToPDF regularly then why not try an alternative method. For example, you could remove the From DocToPDF toolbar and, instead, install a PDF pseudo-printer program (Foxit Reader, CutePDF, etc.). Then, if you need to create a PDF from within Internet Explorer, right-click on the web page, choose Print and print to the PDF pseudo-printer.
