Adobe Digital Editions is useless for Kobo, Library Books!

I am SO frustrated!  I am a teacher, very good with technology...but I have been attempting to download epub books/downloading/re-installing Adobe Digital Editions 3.0, for at least 8 hours now... I have cleared my computer of all the versions, re-loaded, etc.   I even got an email from the library, that apparently Kobo and Adobe are in conflict...so are making it extremely difficult for users on both sides.  First of all, if libraries continue to advertise and share epub books, but have their hands tied with the application we have to use to open them - this is a problem.  Secondly, Adobe is aware of this, and does everything in their power to make it difficult for users - like having the link for 3.0 go nowhere!  This would be so easy to fix.  and Kobo continues to sell their product, knowing that even the most tech savvy people are going to be ready to throw their product at the wall!   Please Adobe - either decide to work with libraries and KOBO together, or tell us to not even bother...which is basically what the library has told me at this point.   

Okay, sorry for the rant.  If anyone has figured out an easy fix, let me know.  I feel bad for my 80 year old mom, who loves her kobo, as a majority of kobo/library/Adobe users will not be able to follow the steps.
