    Software problems regarding serial numbers
    I have been using an adobe application for a long time which... lets just say i shouldnt have. I know many frown upon this but i am a photography student without lot of cash. If I did have the money i would gladly pay as a <3 adobe and i plan to as soon as i start my proffesional career.

    I accidentally clicked allow instead of deny to send information via little snitch and now i cannot use the software as it constantly believes i have over stayed my 30 day free welcome and the serials no's no longer work.

    Question *1 - Is there any way I can fix this easily without reformatting or reinstalling OSX
    Question *2 - If I have to reinstall OSX will it fix this problem and will i still retain all of the other programs installed and will they work as they did before or will it have to be a full reformat?
    Question *3 - Could using a different serial no be a simple answer to this problem?

    A legit one would work.

    If you're a photography student, I'm willing to bet that you're school either sells cheaper copies or has a deal with Adobe that allows them to give you a copy. Consult your school for more details.
