I have a licensing issue.

 

I have 3 hard drives with Elements Premier loaded.  1st, 2nd, and now 3rd.  2nd PC went bad, I got a 3rd PC and reinstalled Elements from a backup.  But wasn't able/didn't remove Elements from the 2nd PC (although I saved the hard drive and installed into the 3rd PC as drive 'E'. 

 

When I run Elements from the 3rd PC, I get a message telling me that I am already running 2 copies and cannot run a third until I delete one.  I would like to keep the copy running on the 1st hard drive (as backup), and get rid of the copy (not running) on the 2nd PC.

 

Any thoughts on this issue - how to get rid of the license on the 2nd hard drive that I will not be using?
