After a hard drive was corrupted, I formatted and ghosted an old drive back to it. All seems to be working fine EXCEPT...

When I re-activate my registration which is required when Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0 is opened, it accepts the re-activation, but then about every 5 mins or every time I try to do something with the program, I get the error message "Your computer's configuration appears to have changed since the time this product was activated. To continue using this product, press OK to activate again..."

This same problem occurred when I ghosted this drive the first time a few months ago. At that time, I found a solution that involved changing some registry settings but I have searched for hours and can not find the solution again.

Can someone please help me? (I've lost the installation CD as well but didn't have it a couple months ago either.)

have you contacted adobe support and explained your issue? if you legally own the software then they'll probably be more than happy to help you get re-activated

I've lost all of my documentation and can re-activate. The reactivation "request" just keeps coming back. Can someone offer a "registry fix"?
