EPS is encapsulated postscript. If you search for programs which can open postscript you will find a lot of them.
Some of them, in a random order, are:
I open a blank Word document, and from insert option, choose pictures, browse and insert the eps file in my document.
Not a great solution if you want to edit the eps file, but good enough if all you want to do is view the file (I'm not installing 3rd party software just to view a file if I don't have to).
I have had no problems with Adobe Acrobat and a bit confused why it isn't working (EPS is supported in the latest few versions), however, I always used to use GIMP which works with them - so you may want to try that.
Your question suggests Acrobat Reader can open an eps file. This is not exactly correct, To open an .eps file with acrobat, you need to import it. This requires a paid account:
From the documentation
Use File > Create PDF > From File
Inkscape allows viewing and editing EPS files.
There is a port of Okular viewer from Linux KDE to Windows
