Adobe Registry search for nppdf32.dll returns the following info:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Components\C37BC61A283EBF9

F:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\Browser\nppdf32.dll
68AB67CA7DA7330167640A0000000010

Also as a side note when Adobe was installing I noticed it passed through a
recomposer which could add some overhead to the installation. While this was
noted on XP I did not see this when installing Adobe on Win 2K.

the comment above.

Flash Player

On a system without mozilla or firefox installed, there is no .xpt file found
anywhere in the Windows system when a search is initiated. After installing
Mozilla/Firefox browsers and then installing flash, the flashplayer.xpt file
shows up in the Components directory of both browsers.

Quicktime

After installing Quicktime and then uninstalling (and making sure to check the 
uninstall everything option, Quicktime still leaves a .xpt file in the Program 
Files directory - nsiqtscriptableplugin.xpt resides in the 
F:\ProgramFiles\Quicktime|Plugins directory. May not be useful information but 
it is interesting that this file remains after a full uninstall.
