Question about Computers & Internet

Hi, I have been given the full install CD's for Adobe CS3 Premium by a friend. Unfortunately he lost the 24 digit registration number off the CD's some time ago and also never bothered to register the software with Adobe (I have already contacted them and they can't help). Is there any way to activate this software at all? I have heard about crack codes, but know nothing of how they work or if they would even work in this case. Thanks Jonathan

    Thanks for the reply. Belarc advisor only works for PCs and not Macs, so it looks like the software will never be able to used in my case. At least I didn't pay for it (small mercy).

Viewing the serial number on an Adobe CS3 installed suite is difficult.

If you go to Help menu , then chose System Info and go down, you have see the first 20 characters, but not the complete serial.

You cannot even retrieve the serial from a register, as the code is distributed on several registries entries and crypted.

The only known way to get the serial is by de-activating the software and then re-activating it again.
Your serial number will be displayed, but there is always the risk to lose your original installation, and if you did things wrong, you won't have the original key to re-install this over $1000 piece of software.

Here is Adobe's link for a replacement serial number with a proof of purchase. It will require your friend's personal information then he can transfer ownership to you. Be aware that they do prosecute if they are not the original cds. Adobe products are not and never have been shipped as cd-r and the labels are never pasted on. http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_15292&sliceId=1

I'm sorry, the use of cracks is illegal. The serial number is the only way to use it. If he has it installed on his system he can use a program called belarc advisor to tell him what the key code is that he installed it with.

What is the difference between windows 7 editions: starter, home basics, home premium,ultimate, professional,interprice?what is the difference between service pack 1 & 2???pc


Since October 31, 2013, Windows 7 is no longer available in retail (except for the Professional edition preinstalled):[6]
Windows 7 Starter Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. It is only available in a 32-bit version and does not include the Windows Aero theme. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict users of this edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.[7]This edition was available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.[1][8][9] Windows 7 Home Basic Windows 7 Home Basic was available in "emerging markets", in 141 different countries.[10] Some Windows Aero options are excluded along with several new features.[1] Home Basic, along with other editions sold in emerging markets, include geographical activation restriction, which requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.[11] Windows 7 Home Premium This edition contains features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and multi-touch support.[12] Windows 7 Professional This edition is targeted towards enthusiasts and small-business users.[1] It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain.[1] Additional features include support for up to 192 GB of Random-access memory (increased from 16 GB),[13] operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, backup to a network location, Encrypting File System, Presentation Mode, Software Restriction Policies (but not the extra management features of AppLocker) and Windows XP Mode.[1] Windows 7 Enterprise This edition targeted the enterprise segment of the market and was sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft.[1] Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface(MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application support.[1] Not available through retail or OEMchannels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA).[1] As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs) and activation via VLK.[14] Windows 7 Ultimate Windows 7 Ultimate contains the same features as Windows 7 Enterprise, but unlike the Enterprise edition, it was available to home users on an individual license basis.[1] Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional users are able to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for a fee using Windows Anytime Upgrade if they wish to do so.[1] Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition does not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features as Microsoft had stated.[1] All editions will receive Mainstream Support (new features and bug fixes) until January 2015 and Extended Support (security updates) until January 2020.[15]

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    How to install Anti virus on my desktop


    Following the steps to install antivirus on you pc.

    Compare antivirus software. Look at the features and benefits of each. Read reviews from authoritative editors from magazines such as "PC World," "Smart Computing" and "PC Magazine." Editors who write for these magazines typically test antivirus software as an unbiased outsider and write about both the good and bad sides of antivirus software. For example, the editors at "PC World" recommended Avira AntiVir, Avast Antivirus and Panda Cloud Antivirus in an August 2009 article. Visit the websites of each antivirus program to view screen shots and descriptions of how the program works. Make a final decision about which antivirus program you want to install.

    Navigate to the website of the antivirus program you've chosen. Go to the "Downloads" section of the site if you're obtaining a free antivirus software. Click on the "Purchase" section or "Buy" button if you have chosen licensed software; pay for and complete the transaction. Click the "Download" button or link for the antivirus program. Save the file to your computer desktop or to a computer directory or folder which you can easily remember.

    Find the antivirus program file you downloaded on your computer. Double-click the ".exe" file (which is an executable file that will install the antivirus program). Once you double-click the ".exe" file, the installation process will automatically begin. Click "Continue" or "Next" on each screen to complete the installation process. Enter your name and contact details if registration is required. Follow any other on-screen prompts to complete the antivirus program installation. Restart your computer if necessary.
