If you've got a Photoshop.com account, the program will interface with it. Beyond that, I suppose you could contact Adobe and ask them what else the program is doing and how to turn it off. I don't think it's something we can help you with on this forum. Sorry.
Have you contacted Adobe about this?
Steve, Thanks & yes I have contacted Adobe & in typical Adobe fashion they have not replied!
There is one thing I have found out. Premiere Ele. 8 has a build in feature that tells the program to contact Photoshop.com for some “mysterious” services! If I disable my nic card and run the program I get the following error:
“PhotoShop.com service are currently unavailable. Please try again later or check your network connections. Error 400.”
I have contacted Adobe concerning this nonsense and again in typical Adobe fashion they have not replied. Is it because they want this program to contact them and collect data on all users! That would explain the reason Adobe has REFUSED to reply to me request of turning this off!
