Specs: Windows 7, Pentium 4 2GHz / 4 gigs.
The problem with Reader is that it gives an error when opening the pdf file, "Cannot extract the embedded font 'HPDFAA+CourierNewPSMT'. Some characters may not display or print correctly".
how do I fix this problem?
maybe someone knows....

It is in black and white written that Adobe Reader doesn't know a font in the document. So until you give this font it will give you errors. If you do not find the desired font then have to recover the file.
Also use this source of information.

It sounds like the problem lies with the pdf file itself and not the reader. Have you tried it with other documents?

You could also try uninstalling Adobe Acrobat reader and installing the latest version from Adobe's site.

First step would be to open Adobe Reader, go to "Help > Check for updates" and get the latest version which is 11.0.11.

There is a chance this might fix it. If not, is it just one pdf file that has problems?
If you have other pdf files saved do these open normally?

EDIT:
Just noticed I overlapped with #1 - had post open a while.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Good post walterstanley251.

Left me for one banging my head against the wall, particularly with "embedded font 'HPDFAA+CourierNewPSMT" given in the original post.

We sure live and learn around these parts.
