How to view damaged or corrupted pdf files?

I have a user that has been downloading PDF files and is unable to open them because they are corrupt. This does not happen all the time to the user, but he is the only one in his department with this problem. The others would download the same file and is able to open the same file. He has the latest version of Adobe Reader and updates. Something new that I have done is install a 4 port giga bit switch which he needs for a network printer in his office. Could the PDFs being downloaded have anything to do with that new switch I installed? Or could it just be a problem with Vista?

That seems like a load of hogwash to me. I've never had a corrupt download just because the network was overloaded. I've had slow downloads or dropped downloads, but if they finished and nothing was wrong with the source, it was good to go. I don't see why a slow network would cause corruption. If that's the case, there there is something seriously wrong with your T1 that needs to be sorted. It's a lot more serious than just clogged bandwidth.

It does seem that on a repeated basis we get spam for a PDF toolkit. I'm actually also suspicious about the originator of this thread in that the other posting (since deleted) almost read like it was the same poster just using a different ID for the followup post.

Precisely. Sock-puppeting is the term I've seen for that kind of thing.
