You can download prior versions of Photoshop here:

You can download older versions of Lightroom from here:

If you're planning to get rid or an old computer but it still runs, choose Help>Deactivate... or Help>Sign-Out... to remove the activation from the computer before you dispose of the computer or sell it. Instructions here:

If you are using Photoshop CS6 or earlier and you've lost an activation because of a hardware failure and the system no longer runs, go to this page and work with a chat agent. They should be able to restore your activation:

If you don't remember your serial # but you've registered your product, you can sign into and access your serial #s here:
