Search/ find Text function not working in Adobe Reader

I am having problem with text search in Adobe reader latest version 9.3.
One pdf file generated through a pdf printer inside a word processing program and has around 100 pages. So there is no issue of having a scanned document which is not searchable.
In this document, when I try to search the text inside the pdf file using Adobe Reader 9.0, it is working alright and it is recognising the text searched for.
However, When the same pdf file is searched using Adobe Reader 9.3 and 9.4 etc it is not searching the text which is present at more than five places in the document.
Please advise.
Scanned PDFs that have not had OCR performed will just contain an image of text, so they cannot be searched. Other files may have messed up fonts. Without looking at eachc particular document, it's hard to say what's wrong.
