I have used Adobe Digital Editions for years without a problem.  I started having difficulty with it when I switched to a computer running Windows 10.  Now I get an activation error when I download an EPUB  ebook.  Following a suggestion on the Adobe website, I tried to de-authorize and then re-authorize the computer.  The de-authorization worked, but when I tried to auyhorize the computer again, the option was grayed out and I could not.  I then uninstalled and reinstalled ADE,then tried the authorization again.  It was still grayed out.  Any suggestions?
