Ensure that the "Adobe Drive CS4 Network" Provider is moved to the bottom of the Provider Order.

3. In the "Network Connections" view, enable the menu by pressing the ALT key.  This will reveal the menu containing "File", "Edit", "View", "Tools", etc.
4. From the "Advanced" menu select "Advanced Settings".  On the "Advanced Settings" dialog switch to the "Provider Order" tab
5. In the "Provider Order" tab highlight the item "Adobe Drive CS4 Network", and then use the down arrow button to move that item to the bottom of the network provider order list.
6. Press OK on the "Advanced Settings" dialog to save your changes.
