Interesting, did you ever find anything out about this? Maybe adobe is using 3rd party mirrors?
It's called you used a crack.
>>It's called you used a crack.
Nope, not in my case. My copy is legit and I got this message from Sunbelt Software's VIPRE AV when starting up After Effects CS4. Oddly, I've run AE several dozen times previously on this system and never had the message. Never saw it with any other CS4 apps either including Flash, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, or Fireworks.
I happen to be using Windows 7 RC. Maybe that has something to do with it.
