Even number pages printing garbled

I have a bizarre problem.  Using Adobe Acrobat 8 or Reader 10, if I print, let's say, a 5 page .pdf document, the even pages (2 and 4) come out garbled (text is backwards, lines missing and printed half-way, etc.).  I've attached a sample, 2 page doc I printed.  Now, if I print the even pages individually, they come out looking fine.

 

I've tried the "advanced" "print to image" fix, tried to update the programs and nothing.  Everything else prints fine on my computer.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks in advance.

"Using Adobe Acrobat 8 or Reader 10"

This is really old stuff. Can't use an updated version?

About Reader, I was mistaken.  It's Acrobat Reader DC which, I think, is pretty new?  Don't have access to a newer version of Adobe, though.  

Printing is fine from everything else - Outlook 365, MS Word, etc.  Just the .pdf's AND same problem from both programs.  Why would age be an issue if they worked perfectly forever?
