Acrobat could not open

Received a pdf file as an e-mail attachment.  Tried to open it and got an error message as follows:
Acrobat could not open "File.pdf" because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).  

I saved it on desktop and tried to open.  No luck.  But I forwarded the email to my laptop and opened it.  I could open no problem.  So, pdf file is not damaged.  

My desktop and laptop has same version of software:  MS Outlook 2007, XP Pro Sp3.  The difference is Laptop has Acrobat 9 Pro and desktop has Acrobat 9 Standard.  

Does anybody know how to fix this error, so that desktop with Acrobat 9 Standard can read this file?  I know my question is same as ID: ID: 23601776, but it did not help me solve my problem.

FYI - When we purchased Dell Optiplex 330 desktop, Acrobat Standard came with it.  So, my company will not allow me to buy Pro for all.

Thank you very much in advance.
