    Unable to return books to library - says I need to authorize computer first but computer is already authorized

    ginabits

      I cannot use Adobe Digital Editions on my home computer since it was upgraded to Windows 10. I had already downloaded books to the library that I want to return and it wont let me do it because it says the computer is not authorized but it already is. I tried erasing the authorization and redoing it to no avail
