Are you both sure that yours are really PDF files, and that they are not damaged?

Also, does this happen with all PDF's or are you talking about just one? If one, it could in fact be damaged.

If you can, open the PDF in Notepad or a text editor and copy/paste the first few lines of code here.

That is indeed either a corrupt PDF or it isn't a PDF at all (regardless of the file extension). You need to see if you can get another one from whomever created this one.

This particular file has been "uuencoded". If it is "uudecoded" it is a normal and valid PDF.

Ask the person making the PDF to stop encoding it, or how they propose that you decode it. Or, find a uudecode app.

That's not the same, not a format I recognise, certainly not a PDF in its current form.

Is it something you were sent, or something that used to be OK and went bad on your computer?

I suggest you forward the email back to your colleague and ask if he or she can open the file. I'd expect no, but you never can tell (e.g. they may have a special app, or their email program might do funny things).

This looks like a perfectly normal PDF; it should open on any computer.  What are the Reader versions used on these different systems?
