This happens when opening or scrolling the pdf file.  There are other pdf files that she has that does the same thing however she is able to see the full document once she clicks ok.

How do I get rid of this annoying error?

I suspect that the PDF file(s) that show this error are corrupt. How were these files generated? What application generated them?

It was created in Quark.  And when it is opened on a machine that has Adobe Pro 7.0, the picture disappears.

I have Adobe reader 7.0 on my laptop and get hte annoying thing that happens as stated above.

Strange!

Is this on a PC or a Mac?
Which version of XPress was used? Was the file printed to the Adobe PDF printer, or created with the XPress export PDF function?

I looked in the document properties and it states the following:

QuarkXpress 6.5
PDF Version 1.3 (Acrobat 4.x)
Tagged PDF = no

Does this help any? :-)

I'm not sure if it was file printed to the Adobe PDF printer, or created with the XPress export PDF function. How would I be able ot tell?

Thanks!

It looks like the file was generated by XPress. You can try to print to the Adobe PDF printer (that is, if you have Acrobat installed on the machine that is running XPress). If that does not produce the error, it's very likely that the problem is caused by either the mechanism that XPress uses to create PDFs (they are using a Global Graphics tool and not any Adobe software), or that something in the XPress file is wrong. You could try to remove one complex object at a time and recreate the PDF and see which object causes the problem. I would start with the most complex placed objects.

The problem was created because of the way they saved the file.

Thanks!
