I'm having the same issue after formating my computer. My old photoshop version is CS2 and I used to be able to download it directly from a link provided by Adobe. I am no longer able to find it.

Even if you had an installer, you can't activate it.  After 15 years, it's time to get new software.

 

As @John T Smith  said, Photoshop Elements is affordable and a major step up from what you've been using.

 

Another option would be the deeply discounted Photography Plan bundle for USD $10/month x 12 months.  Everything a digital photographer needs and more:
-- Photoshop CC and Photoshop for iPad
-- Lightroom on desktop, mobile and the web
-- Lightroom Classic
-- Free Portfolio website + hosting
-- Spark with premium features
-- Bridge
-- 20 GB cloud storage (upgradable to 1 TB).
