Unfortunately I am running in circles as the result is the same.
Thank you for the link but I have already had this page provided to me by my school. Nevertheless, I followed your advise, downloaded the latest version once again and restarted my computer. Again, I am not able to get my computer authorised, with or without an ID. I get either of the two messages : 1) Microsoft tells me there is a problem with my computer. 2) Adobe tells me I have no internet access and in order to proceed I should gain internet access.That is the reason why I have today purchased an AVG software. I have additionally purchased the service of having the AVG software installed on my computer by an AVG representative remotely by allowing him temporary access to my laptop. Subsequently he installed the software successfully, run all necessary checks, optimised my computer and there are currently no problems with it whatsoever.
I have then asked him for this additional favour to watch me trying to download the e-book using your software, just in case I am doing something incorrectly. He agreed and upon my attempting to download the e-book again, the same problems occurred. He followed the steps himself - again no joy. He then advised me to ask Adobe for help. In his opinion the program Adobe stops responding and there is nothing more he could do to help me. I had his reassurances that my computer is in full working order and the problem does not lie here.
I am back to you asking you for help. I am attaching here photos of the two messages that keeping popping up whenever I try to download the e-book.
Is there anything at all you can do to help me? I quite need this e-book for my exam which is fast approaching. I would be really grateful if you could sort something out...
Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you.
Quickly you can do a check.

You should see something like:
If it says "UP", this indicates ADE will be able to contact activation server.
If not, then, maybe firewall is causing you this issue.
Unfortunately, having stopped firewall on my computer and all antivirus programs to allow computer authorisation to take place, we got exactly the same result the message is as attached - see photo.
I have also been in touch with my school and the tech support there have advised me the following
Unfortunately none of the advice you gave me proved helpful.
My brother saw a discussion on your forums re the problem with authorisation I am experiencing. He realised many people were experiencing the same problems while using the latest version of adobe digital editions.
Here is a solution:-
1) Download version 2 of Adobe Digital Editions
2) Get your computer authorised
3) Download the latest version of Adobe Digital Editions
4) Finally download the ebook desired.
Conclusion - the latest version of Adobe Digital Edition has some problem that needs sorting. Whilst looking for a solution, you may wish to provide other users with the information I am providing you here with.
