I am having a similar problem. Every time I open ADE, I have to authorize my computer. Isn't once enough? And now, I can't get to any of my downloads because there have been too many activations. Do you have to authorize your computer every time you want to open ADE, or is it supposed to be a one time thing? If it's a one time thing, why isn't my computer already authorized?
Yes to get this fixed you need to log a tech support case by going through the Web Portal http://www.adobe.ocm/support/digitaleditions/ (click on "Submit a web case"). Make sure to include the AdobeID you are using along with the full text of the error message in your description.
I will be out of the office starting 24/12/2009 and will not return until
I will be on holiday until Monday 4th January 2010.
Should you need my urgent input please contact me via my mobile phone and
leave a message that I will respond to when in a position to do so.

I have logged this and am not so patiently waiting............ I notice that you have managed to reset authorisations for other users, would there be any chance of a little seasonal good cheer and kindly do the same for me, I would be extremely grateful, and it would keep the peace in the house tonight!
many hopeful thanks!
