Adobe Creative Suite 3 Installation Problems

After installing Adobe CS3, and activating the 30-day free trial, the software fails to recognize the serial number when attempting to activate the software again. This issue seems to affect computers with serial numbers that are licensed for more than one machine, such as the license for some University of Wisconsin Oshkosh machines.

The error messages state: "the machine could not get the expiration info," or "the serial number has been activated too many times."
This issue can be resolved by un-installing the software, running the Adobe CS3Clean script and then reinstalling the software.
