Computer drive went bad, replaced drive, re-installed Windows, now when trying to register book with my Adobe ID I get the error: "Limit of number of machines allowed per ID Reached. "
Is there a web portal or somewhere I can remove the broken machine so I can activate it again? 


I tried these instructions I found from a different post but it doesn't fix the issue:

Close all applications on the new device.
Press WINDOWS + R.
In the Open text box, type regedit and then press Enter. The Registry Editor opens.
In the left pane of the Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adept
Remove the Adept Folder.
In the Confirm Key Delete dialog, click OK.
Close the Registry Editor.
Open Adobe Digital Editions and reauthorize..


Contacted Adobe directly and they are no help, keep saying is not supported and check forum.
