You can't solve it if you only have the free Reader. Report the issue to the author of the file.

Well, that's a different matter... How did you create the file? Do you still have access to the original file format? If not, you can export the pages as images (use high-quality PNG format), then create a new PDF from those images and run Text Recognition on it.
