Did they replace a significant amount of hardware in the system? That could make Adobe think you're trying to run the software on a new computer.
In any case you have to call Adobe Customer Support to resolve activation issues. Explain what you did and they will likely be very helpful.
Think you need to call customer service as only they can deal with activation issues.
Noel is a faster typer.
I don't know what they did honestly. I sent it off because of a failed pump in my liquid cooling.
I get it back today to find what appears to be a different bios, the desktop background telling me a copy of win7 that isnt genuine is installed, my anti virus program turned off, my monitor calibration profiles gone, and finally the adobe software telling me my activation limit is reached.
But i got all of that fixed now and now the Adobe software too. Thank you Noel!!! :-)
Who knows what else I'll find next. ughh... i dread that moment.
