Hi everone,

"A friend of mine :p" just used a crack for adobe illustrator CS4, but would like to reverse it. The CMD code is:
FIND /C /I "activate.adobe.com" %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
IF %ERRORLEVEL% NEQ 0 ECHO ^127.0.0.1 activate.adobe.com>>%WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

I have no experience whatsoever in command prompt programming, could anyone please give advise?


Help is appreciated, thanks!

In the first place, your "friend" shouldn't buy pirated stuff. If "he/she" wants to clean the computer of the changes, they can try system restore.

Just uninstall the software choosing to remove all profile and preference settings, restart and reinstall.

That is a perfect example of why one shouldn't use cracks for software. Until removed, one is vulnerable to a current remote file execution bug in adobe's pdf reader because it cannot be updated.
