Hello! I was working on something using my browser, and I had not used any Adobe programs in the past three months, but I got this...I can't click out, either. This is a scam, and you can't convince me otherwise. The fact that I can't close it, and that the only interactive thing seems to be Learn More... It seems suspicious... I'm doing this on my iPad just in case, but I don't think my father should have gotten Adobe Disks from the swap meet. I hate pirating! Anyway, I'm not going to use my computer until further suggestions (hopefully not tricks) are given.
What's a "swap meet"? You cannot just swap Adobe software or give it away without completing a transfer request with Adobe.
Swap meet is another term for flea market, if that helps. Usually it's a place where people can come, set up a table, and sell off things they don't want anymore, instead of having a garage or yard sale.
Even though you haven't been using the Adobe products, a bunch of background processes start up every time your computer boots. Adobe programs check in with the Adobe servers about every 3 months to validate that they are still legal to use, as in, you purchased the license and registered it. If you bought it second-hand, the original owner must transfer the license to you through Adobe. If you bought pirated software ... well, can't help you there.
