Reading from Wikipedia: “PDF/A is an ISO-standardized version of the Portable Document Format (PDF) specialized for use in the archiving and long-term preservation of electronic documents.” This little feature can be really annoying because, sometimes, it can prevent you from reading your PDF file.  Here is a step-by-step guide to solve this issue. 

  1. Open Adobe Reader 9 or any other Adobe PDF Reader version (Click Start — All Programs — Adobe Reader )
  2. Click on Edit  and right after that hit Preferences.
  3. In the Preferences window, click  Documents located on the left side of the screen
  4. Change the PDF/A View Mode drop down menu from Only for PDF/A documents to Never.
  5. Done!
