    apparently photoshop hates me. (HEATHER & OTHER PS'ERS READ)

    lol. okay so, i got cs4 from my cousin a few months ago. i installed the program, entered the serial number & everything was fine.

    yesterday i had to restart my computer & now all of a sudden its like "your serial number is not valid"

    .... okay. so i googled the heck out of the topic & i really didnt find any resolutions.

    halp? i cant live without photoshop & i heard adobe's customer service sucks so calling them is a last resort. lol

    As a geek by trade, start with a repair if possible and if not uninstall and reinstall. That is remove it, reboot, install it, reboot. Odds are its keys in the registry got jacked up. If the restore works, you could export that branch of the hive in case it happens again.

    Anyway good luck.

    -Uninstall it
    -Clear every mention of Photoshop out of your Registry (Start > Run > regedit)
    -Reinstall

    If that doesn't work, do the above again and reinstall CS3.

    k i did the start- run- regedit thingy and i searched for photoshop files but didnt find any.


    then i searched for photoshop files on my actual computer & there were still folders w/ PS stuff that the regedit didnt find.

    :| this stuff is confusing

    Adobe is going to bury the registration info in the registry and likely is in hexadecimal or otherwise encrypted.

    Do you know where to find what services are running?

    Right click My Computer, select Manage, then open Services.

    See if you have something called FLEXnet Licensing service. It's new to CS4.

    didnt see anything called flexnet. i'll reinstall PS later & see what happens.

    my computer is being a ***** lately. World of Warcraft is giving me errors too. it said something with my ram isn't right. my computer is brand new and i really dont see why i'm having so many problems.

    i had to system restore back to yesterday & now WoW is working but running really slow.

    i'm about to save all of my files to a jump drive & just reformat the whole computer

    Run a intensive virus scan or spyware check lately? Something is using a large block of memory.

    CS4 needs to be activated in order to run. Are you sure that finished successfully? Do you have Deactivate shown in the Help menu? The FLEXnet service is set to manual, but starts when PS (or the other CS4 apps) start.

    Did you deactivate your previous version of PS before installing CS4 (if you had a previous version)?

    That may be it. Conflicting S/Ns.

    Either way I think uninstalling and reinstalling is the way to go. I've heard of some hang-ups on CS4 but never had issue with mine (knock on wood).
