(Note: If you get an error message saying the program is in use, do the following first: Ctrl-Alt-Del --> Task Manager --> Processes Tab --> Sort by Image Name. Find "ioffline.exe" in the list and click “End Process.”)
Step 4: Go to C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Adobe\AIR\ELS. Delete the folder "ioffline.81FA133F75F33E2D63625F7A6A37BDA4DE3C1E7E.1"
