Adobe Spyware Warning
You should really be aware that Adobe has it's own spyware enabled on ALL of it's products (with the possible exception of Streamline)
This spyware logs into the Adobe website and reports which S/N your using for your product. Adobe then maintains a huge list of illegally used S/Ns, which it then invalidates on it's next release of the product. Thus, it's in EVERYONE's interest that you immediately disable this spyware!!!
The process is very simple. Just go into Crogram FilesCommon FilesAdobeWeb and rename the program AOM.exe to AOM.xxx. This prevents it from running for ALL Adobe products.
And always have a firewall running. So you can disable adobe's software to contact the internet.
