Adobe Creative Suites 3 (CS3) auto update doesn't work

If you try updating your Adobe CS3 product and receive a message saying updates cannot be detected at this time, it's because of an expired security certificate. This cert comes with the CS3 install, and I don't believe Adobe issued a new one. However, to get around this problem, simply set your system time back to any date prior to 10/16/2011. Doing this will trick your system into thinking it's prior to the expiration of the security certificate, so the connection will be allowed. Make sure to set your system time back to normal though after getting your updates installed.
