PDF files have random charaters

When I open a pdf file in Adobe Reader,  the format is correct but the caractures are random, what i call gobblee gook.  Example:  (&)*PLKJT^^%())((.  I have all windows updates, adobe reader 9, java updates.

I have had this happen before with Acrobat Reader. I use Foxit Reader which is a free (much faster) alternative.
