How old?
What are you trying to open them with - Acrobat reader or some other pdf reader?

Yes Acrobat (with the latest upgrade) in Windows 10. Never had any issues before...

Sounds like either your files or your Acrobat could be corrupted.

Download a pdf from a reliable source. If that won't open, uninstall and reinstall Acrobat.
Do you have any other device you can use to open the files - a phone or another PC?

I've tried it on a Library computer with surprisingly the same results...

Please check and access your old pdf files and see if you have any issues.

Is it just the one file you're having trouble with?
