Either after you upgrade to Windows Vista, or if you install Adobe Photoshop CS2 on a Windows Vista computer. You are always prompted to reactivate your copy of Adobe Photoshop CS2.
Adobe's activiation proceedure uses older methods that require administrative priviledges. It appears to do some sort of hardware validation to see if it is installed on a different computer.
However since Windows Vista provides a seperation layer, photoshop is unable to make that verification and assumes you have installed it on a new computer.
Adobe does not have any patches for Photoshop CS2 to work around the issue, and wants end users to upgrade to the latest copy.
Instead of doing this you can simply right click on your Adobe Photoshop CS2 icon and select properties.
Now the next time you run Adobe Photoshop CS2 it should work correctly. If it does ask for activation, it should be the last time.
