Hi Stella,

Just had the same problem and found the solution before the (very
helpful) guys at Adobe Support did. The solution worked and even they
didn't excactly know why.
Perhaps this also works for you:
* Click Start > Settings > Printers and open the Properties for the
Adobe Distiller "Printer".
* Click the "Font"-tab.
* Click the "Send Fonts as..." button in the lower left of the box.
* In the middle of the just opened "Send Fonts as..." box is a textbox
with the a sentence above it that starts with "Threshold to switch
between downloading bitmap...".
* Enter the value "1" in the box in stead of the default "100".
* Keep clicking "OK" until your back in the Printers Window.
* Start Acrobat Distiller and try distilling the file.
Hope this works!
