I haven't been able to use Adobe Digital Editions for some time. I receive "error! Check activation" every time I  download a book from OverDrive. My computer is authorized. Directions are to erase the authorization and authorize again. I usually first get an error that states " can't do that right now try again later" I immediately try again and it doesn't take my password. This is the same password I use with my Adobe account. I have Adobe CC. Don't know where to go from here. Should I reset my Adobe password?
