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.

How do I extract text from a complex PDF reader?

I know only that classic repair pdf can't help you. Alternative solutions might be Adobe pdf and other resources from Adobe
If you use a PC, you can use software you already have on your computer to retrieve some of the content. Right-click on the corrupt file and choose 'Open With' and select the Notepad program that comes bundled with every copy of Windows. The resulting file will contain a lot of coding but within that coding you will see the content. This is perhaps a only really viable with text-only PDFs as when you are dealing with images and forms, Notepad will be swamped with coding and finding the text can be the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Huawei ascend m860 manual

This is an odd looking link, but it leads to what you requested: the Ascend M860 Manual, in PDF format:

I suggest that, instead of clicking on the link, that you Right-Click on the link and choose the option, "Save As", and allow the PDF file to download to your "My Documents" folder or your Desktop or some other location where you can find it after it finishes downloading.

To open, view, or print the document, you will need to have Adobe Reader installed. If you don't already have Adobe reader, you can get it by going to and choosing the appropriate link to download and install to your computer.

When downloading a document it goes into my notebook instead of adobe and comes out gibberish

you may have accidently selected notepad as the default program for these types of files. Right click on one of the adobe files and select 'Open With', make sure that the 'always open these files with' box is ticked on the bottom of the screen and browse through your program files to find adobe and select it. click on ok or apply.

Hopefully this will help

Help with adobe 7.1.0

In order to edit a PDF document, you will need either one of Adobe's commercial Acrobat products or a similar third-party application.

You can often copy the contents of a PDF document to a word processor or text editor program (e.g., Microsoft Word or Notepad) and then edit them, but in this case you cannot resave the document as PDF (unless your word processor specifically has the ability to create PDF files).

To copy the document's contents:

from the Adobe Reader Edit menu,

choose Save as Text.

Alternatively, from the Edit menu, choose Select All; then, from the same menu, choose Copy, and then paste the text into your word processing program using that program's paste function.
