Word docs open with "bar code" font

Hi - We are having a strange issue with our company policy, and several other word docs. We are storing it on a server, where if we open the file on the server, it opens and looks normal. If we open it on a computer, the entire document looks like its defaulted to a "bar code" font, and the font name is still the same and hasn't changed on both server and PC! No idea why this is happening - please see attached pic - any help is appreciated.

Another note I wanted to add was, the font that shows on both server and computer is one called "Adobe Gurmukhi", which for some reason doesn't show as a listed font in Windows, so i'm not sure where this is coming from.

The interesting thing about that theory is, if I send the file to my home computer, and open it there, it shows the same "Adobe Gurmukhi" font, but the text in the file is exactly the way it should be! Any other ideas would be appreciated.

Just curious; if you create a new document with this font and distribute it, does it have the same issue? If not (and assuming the document with the issue uses the same font everywhere), open the document, press "Control-A", *only* select the font, save and see if the issue recurs.
