"Calling home" is a term used to describe the act of a program connecting to a developer's server. Like all other Adobe applications, Photoshop CS4 will call home frequently to check for updates and authenticity. Some users feel that calling home is an infringement on their privacy, and for this reason want to stop Photoshop CS4 from connecting to the Internet. Block connections from any application by configuring Windows' firewall. By blocking Photoshop CS4 through the firewall, it will not be able to connect to the Internet and call home.
