Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 169382

Lately when I have tried to open PDFs I get a message which states that it can not be opened because the origination of the file is not known. No matter what program I try to open them in, I either can not open it or if it does open, most of the characters are jumbled numbers and letters, and sometimes even in different languages. I am wondering if it could possibly be the age of my computer, or maybe it could be that I don't have a particular type of software. I did down load the PDF to Word software, and it does work. But I need to learn how to open all types of files. I know that I have said a lot, and I could say a lot more, but I would appreciate it if you help me out, or point me in the right direction. Thank you.
