I have adobe acrobat reader, the free version. I just recently started having a problem of the pages all have what looks like full page watermarks making it impossible to read. I have to print to be able to read anything that comes to me. I have made a couple of Word docs that I converted to PDFs and am able to read them fine. Thanks for the help.
