Elements 10: stop prompting to log in with Adobe ID

Why am I constantly being asked to sign in to my Adobe account when I simply want to use Premiere or PS Elements 10? I have no Adobe profile, I will never have an Adobe profile. Is there any way to bypass these nag-screens...permanently?

And further to my last question. . . I had already signed in to my Adobe account, but I had to sign in again to post the question, and I had to enter a User name, which I already have, and I had to enter a verification code, which I did, THREE times, because the first two times I got an "Invalid code" even though I had copied and pasted the code. I am really regretting ever having bought this software and I haven't even used it yet!

You are being asked for you Adobe ID so that you can have your product registered (like all product registration, this is proof of ownership and activation of the warranty, etc). Registration is not mandatory but certainly recommended. However, if you are clicking the "Skip" button, it shouldn't ask you at every launch. Basically, that choice should be remembered by your computer. If it is asking every time, this means that the selection is not being remembered. There could be a number of reasons for this, from overbearing security software/settings to user permissions. I would suggest this: right-click the Elements Editor directly from its executable file (not from the default desktop shortcut) and choose Run as Administrator to grant additional permissions to PSE and see if that helps the setting get remembered.

Logging into this site to post questions shouldn't require any kind of code, for verification or otherwise. And signing into an application is not the same as signing into a web site, the two are mutually exclusive.
