you obviously use latex, dvips, ghostscript/distiller to create pdf.  

You can avoid these problems by using pdflatex instead.  You have to
convert all graphic files from eps to pdf.  Please use the program
`epstopdf' for this purpose.  It uses ghostscript in the background.
This sounds a bit inconvenient, but on the other hand pdftex can
include png and jpeg directly.

In very few cases it makes sense to go the latex->dvips route because
pdftex lacks a PostScript interpreter, but in most cases pdftex is the
best choice.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
