Yes, great - but too many options there.

  -> Is there a way I can make it just diplay PDF file, with no controls, except exit?
  -> That is, I would like to customize PDF application, so it will contain just the necessary amount of menu items.

For example, I've found Cool PDF reader very simple and useful, tho I can't have that nagging link in the top right corner.

Will get back to the post later with more findings.

OK, Sumatra PDF is GPL, so I will just modify UI a bit and it will be ready to go! :-)

Will post more, this could be useful for others.

    I can recommend Sumatra PDF, tho have in mind that this is a light and simple reader, without any advanced features, but on the other hand - SumatraPDF's RAM footprint is 4MB...
