    Adobe Reader, I tried versions 9.1 first and then uninstalled it to see if version 7 might work better, gives me the error message that my ___.pdf file is not a supported file or is corrupted. I am able to open some of the same type of files from my source and not able to open others. Makes no sense!

That is zip file. You need to open it with winrar or winzip program. Zip is compresion format, after you open that file with winrar you will probably see your pdf file that you cann open with adoble reader.

one thing you can try if you have an hotmail or gmail account, its to load the pdf to your online drive, and then go to your account, go to the same folder and open it selecting read on-line (on-line readers are always up to date !) if that way it doesn't work too, your file is damaged !

A try download a particular pdf file but each time after i download it, i get this reply when i try open it 'pdf file damaged and cannot be repaired' what exactly is d cause?

May be the file is actually damaged, or may be your PDF Reader is actually damaged.
First try to download the PDF file from different source(s) and then try opening that file.
If it doesn't work, go for different PDF Readers. Like you may try the Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader to open that file.

1. Download Adobe Reader 10.0 here
2. Download Foxit Reader 4.3 here

Adobe reader error message

In Internet Explorer, when you click on a link to a pdf file,
you get the error message “Adobe Reader could not open ‘filename.fdf’ because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been corrupted.”

This error is due to an issue with Adobe Acrobat viewing PDF files in a web browser.
Try the following:

1. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools -> Internet Options and on the General tab to erase all temporary files, cookies and history data.
2. Under Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options, on the General tab click on Settings and make sure you select the option “Automatically” for checking for newer versions of the stored pages. Then attempt to open the PDC file again.
3. If solutions 1 and 2 do not work then uninstall Adobe Acrobat, then reinstall it again.
It seems that Acrobat 6 is more prone to this error so upgrading to Acrobat 7 may solve the problem.

All d best.

Any furthur help feel free to ask me again i will be more than happy to assist you.

When opening a program adobe reader opens with a blank sceen and tells me that it could not open (the program) because it is not a supported file or it has been damaged

what file are you trying to open? adobe reader only opens documents in pdf and adobe format. when opening a program, right click then choose "open with" option, and select the appropriate program to open the file with. most of them open with internet explorer or ms word.
