Try un-installing the adobe acrobat reader program and reinstalling it. If you have XP it is in ADD/REMOVE programs in the control panel. If you have Vista it is in Programs and features in the control panel. Then go to adobe's website and download the newest FREE Acrobat Reader. Make sure you un-check to get the FREE toolbar, as they are usually junk and cause more problems then they help.

Pdf files garbled


The PDF, or portable document format, file bridges the gaps between many software programs. Someone using one program to create a file need not worry that his intended recipient have that same program, because PDFs just require a free software program to open. On occasion, it may seem like a PDF is just as hard to open as a native file created in that proprietary software, but one of a variety of factors may contribute to the unreadability problem.

Software
One of the most common reasons a PDF is unreadable -- and the easiest to fix -- is that the person trying to open the PDF doesn't have the software to do so. To open a PDF requires the free downloadable program Reader, created and distributed by Adobe, which also makes the PDF-creation software Acrobat. A person who doesn't have Reader installed won't see the familiar red-and-black PDF icon; they'll see a white box symbolizing that the computer doesn't know how to read the file. b> Zoom b> Although it seems quite obvious, a person's screen resolution may have everything to do with why a PDF appears unreadable. Since PDFs are often scans or saved files of standard 8.5-by-11-inch paper, small fonts and occasionally handwriting can get be scaled to tiny dimensions when the sheet is viewed full . Zoomed out, a heavily typed or scrawled PDF may appear as a bunch of jumbled black dots and lines instead of the clear text it would be when zoomed in. Conversion b> Even if you have the Reader software installed, trying to open a PDF in a program that doesn't allow it will cause problems. For example, the Reader software doesn't let you edit a PDF -- you need Acrobat for that -- but you can still use other programs to do things such as redacting, or making black lines to obscure information. You can open a PDF in a program such as Adobe Photoshop and have the PDF be completely readable. On the other hand, if you try to open a PDF in Windows Paint, the operating system's native graphics tool, it will be unreadable because Paint does not accept PDF files. b> Missing Elements b> Something that appears perfectly readable on one person's screen may look entirely unreadable on another, solely because of what's missing from the file. In some cases, a PDF that looks jumbled is a result of missing fonts. While it may seem simple to just create a PDF from whatever document you're working on, if the person who receives your PDF doesn't have those fonts installed, the PDF may be unreadable. You can combat this one of two ways -- try to use universal fonts, such as Helvetica; or take the extra steps to embed the fonts into the PDF. This requires use of Distiller, also an Adobe product. An unreadable PDF may also be missing the password or certificate to render the document readable. Contact the person who created the PDF to inquire whether he locked it with an encryption. Encryption is removable with a key or password. Hope this helps.

I don't know if I need to download Adobe Reader. What is it for? I use my computer mainly for emails.


If you download and install Adobe Reader, you can see .PDF files like insurance cards for your automobile for instance. Emails don't require .pdf file capability, usually, but traditional printed documents available online are usually put into the .pdf file format.

What program should i use to open files they dont open with internet explorer


A file is usually open by the computer only when the associated program is installed in the system. The associated program recognize the file extension and open it.

For Example :A notepad file will be open by Notepad editor untill and unless you cange it to open with other program.

Microsoft Word can open a notepad file too.

Files usually you will find or will downloaded from internet are usually .exe, .rar, .zip, mp3, .avi, pdf etc.

I recommended, you installed these few softwares

1. Adobe Flash player.

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe

2. Adobe Reader.

http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.2/enu/AdbeRdr920_en_US.exe

3.Jave runtime

http://fs4.filehippo.com/2222/75ce054974f24f4ca18bf8c0be7bc18f/jre-6u17-windows-i586-s.exe

4. Winrar

http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar391.exe

Don't if you are not sure of the application to open a file.Download
"Irfanview".below is the link

http://fileforum.betanews.com/sendfile/1099412658/1/1262777908.514057fe0774684918afa85f23fdb31b3a1511ce/irfanview_plugins_425_setup.exe

It will open almost any files.

That's it.

Why dont you try deleting Internt Explorer, and when you delete Internet explorer, delete the flash players also. Restart the machine and reinstall IE.

after IE is installed, reinstall the flash players from adobe.

If it STILL dont work, then just reinstall the OS?


Hope that helped
