Try re-installing Acrobat Reader to see if that help and/or try opening it on someone elses computer to see if it opens... If it DOES open on some-one elses computer, then consider doing a "FULL SYSTEM TEST" for traces of damaged/corrupt registry keys, files, viruses, spyware and bad sectors on the hard disk....

This sounds like the file is corrupted.
