Deactivate option missing from Adobe Acrobat X Help menu

I'm trying to Deactivate Adobe Acrobat X standard before uninstalling it since I need to reformat a laptop.
However the Deactivate option is missing from the help menu.
Not dimmed, just missing completely.
Would this only be the case if this user didn't have the product activated? Or does Adobe Acrobat X Standard not share the traditional Deactivation method as other Adobe products/suites?

Windows 7.

It takes a minute or so for the deactivate menu to appear after you start Acrobat X. Did you wait? The option is not there immediately. ... Thinkpads_User

Yeah I had it open for at least 4 mins but never saw it.

I looked around Google and Adobe for deactivation issues and saw nothing apparent. Adobe is a new product still under support. Try uninstalling it (I did see that suggestion) as it may not have activated correctly. Once uninstalled, do your laptop work. When you then try to install Acrobat X, it should activate, but if not, call Adobe Support. You aren't doing anything wrong, so they should readily re-activate if necessary.

Yeah I just uninstalled it, hoping a deactivation prompt would come up, but nothing.
Will just reinstall and activate with Adobe over the phone. I'm sure it wasn't activated by previous installer.
