How do I disable "Starting with this version, you have the option to share information with Adobe..." welcome dialog? If I click the link to take me to https://accounts.adobe.com/security/a... or don't click it, no matter what I do EVERY SINGLE TIME I START PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS the same dialog appears. How do I get rid of it. It's extremely annoying. This does not happen on my desktop, only my Surface Pro laptop. I posted this same question on https://forums.adobe.com/message/7426... and it has been ignored. Any help would greatly be appreciated. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and that had no effect.

It should only appear the first time you use the product.
So it sounds like your preferences aren't being written for some reason - most likely a permissions problem on your user preferences directory.
