Go to the direct download page and download CS6...Google brings up this link: Adobe CS6 Direct Download
This is a good reason to keep a disk image of your system when it is working properly. I use Norton Ghost for Windows and Time Machine for Mac. It takes less than an hour to fully restore either system with a backup.

Why do you think that you'd need to pay thousands of dollars to upgrade your plug-ins?
Most of this information is scattered so I didn't see any of that. This is awesome. I don't have to upgrade and I can get the CS6 versions as well incase I do have a problem. Awsome info. Thanks again.
Yeah I do keep backups and a system image at all times but something hapened to corrupt everything. I figured out not to keep a system image on a secondary HDD (non-raid or raid) if it is internal because it can be corrupted along with the main HDD. Learned my lesson! And I'm going to start backing up all my adobe working files on the cloud storage. I almost lost two years of my magazine designs. I did manage to recover them though using the GetDataBack v4.33 program. It's cheap and effective. and allows you copy files from an unreadable disk for the cheap price of $79. This won't be happening again, I can assure you of that. Thanks for the info.
