Adobe Acrobat Now Requires Someone with Administrative Rights - I get a pop-up saying this

As soon as i open Acrobat i get a pop-up saying:
"Adobe Activation:
Activation requires that you have administrative rights on this computer.
Please log in as as administrator and try again, or contact you system administrator"
I've never had a problem before with this.
Anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks

Is this now Acrobat V11?  I think that is normal that V11 be installed and activated by an administrator.

John HurstBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
So you are saying the activation prompt happens even though you are administrator. Is this correct?

Try the following:

1. Uninstall Adobe. If it ask if you want it de-activated or the license removed, say yes.
2. Restart the computer.
3. Install Adobe again and now in the same userid, Activate it. Does it Activate?
4. Update it. All recent versions have updates available including V11.
5. Restart the computer and test.

Any luck?
