I recently bought a new iMac and installed Photoshop Elements 9. The program is telling me that I have it on two computers already, though I have removed it, and given my old computer away. What now?
Removing only isn't good enough because Adobe Servers need to know that the product has been de-activated. The usual process is to deactivate the product before removing it. You can resolve it by going to your friend and re-installing the software again and then going to:
Help >> Deactivate
OK that is one way of doing it. Another way is to start a chat with friendly Adobe staff. I suggest go to this link and scroll down to see the button to start conversation!!!!:
Explain to them what has actually happened.
