I'm about to reset my laptop to factory conditions and I need to reinstall Adobe CS 5.5 on it. I have the product key, but no way to actually download the programs, How would you suggest I get around this problem? The programs are currently installed on my Laptop. Its running Windows 8.1.

Because the laptop has many many programs on it that I can't be bothered to uninstall, not to mention I played around with the registry a bit. I wish to start on a clean slate. The problem is that I'm not sure how I'm going to get the software onto the laptop once its been reset. I'm not sure how to re-install the software because its not allowed to be downloaded again by adobe. Do you have a suggestion how to get the software and put it onto a hard drive and then re install when I need to?

The you're not doing a 'factory reset'. You just need to uninstall programs. Do that via Control Panel, Programs. Don't be so lazy. Else you'll have to reformat the drive, which wipes it clean, re-install Windows and download CS and re-install it. You can do that if you have the key code for it.

But the problem is that I have no way to get the program back if I get rid of it.
There is no way to redownload the program from adobe and I don't have any way to get it back.
