Are you using Acrobat or Reader on Windows? If so, open up the application's preferences, then go to the "Security (Enhanced)" category and disable protected mode. After restarting your application, you should be able to print. If you are on a Mac, your only option is to "Print as Image" - you can find this after you click on the "Advanced" button on the print dialog.

If using Windows, try to disable protected mode temporarily: choose Edit -> Preferences and click Security (Enhanced) on the left. Choose Protected Mode as Off and Uncheck "Enable Enhanced Security". Close Acrobat, restart it, and try to print the document again.

If the Protected Mode is not interfering, try the "Print as Image" option. Click the Advanced button in the Print dialog box to find this option.
