Frequently when I'm doing something on my computer--and I haven't figured out any common theme as to when it happens--I get this popup saying that my computer is installing or configuring "PureHD" and it has some path that starts in the Corel folder. I have Corel Painter X and Corel PaintShop Photo Pro and something called "MLE" installed in the Corel folder under "Program Files" on my computer. 

At first I would always cancel out of the seemingly neverending onslaught of "PureHD" installation windows, but then I decided to try to let it install, but it says that resources aren't there and wants me to locate files manually, and of course I have no idea what it's looking for. 

I'm pretty sure that PureHD isn't anything I want or need, so how can I make it go away already? Thanks in advance.

HELLO WebKat' I don't know what the PureHD is but you can tell your anti virus to block it incoming and out going. I think I would do a search in Window and find out more about you have going on with it. Or at least use your fire wall.........Sad

Try here:

Let not the one who says it can't be done interrupt the one who is doing it.

I don't have an anti-virus. I've never needed one...

I tried that and pureHD.msi was not found in my registry.

Surprise. Lucky Guy.

Lucky girl, you mean. ;)

I just don't open attachments or visit links from emails and so on... never gotten a virus yet and I've been using computers since my C64 in the 80s.

 

So according to that link, I need to reinstally PaintShop Pro X3 and uninstall it and it will take PureHD away with it?

If you think you may have installed and partially uninstalled PSP X3 at some time in the past then that may be the answer.

But elsewhere it suggests that PureHD is part of nvidia hardware acceleration so perhaps you should let it install if you have nvidia graphics or do graphics-intensive work. Or perhaps you should reinstall or update your video drivers and see if that fixes it.

So, its two possibilities to try, but I've no way of telling whether they might help.

It WON'T install because it says things are missing, so that isn't an option.

From HTFC site. Three of their forum users agreed the actions stopped the PureHD from trying to install. Only passing it on.

"For me the fix was to locate and disable the USIShellExt installed by Ulead. It's HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{DBD8E168-244D-448C-9922-25508950D1DC} under your registry. You may want to export this key in case something goes wrong, but it shouldn't. Delete this key and reboot and you should be fine

Copy this: DBD8E168-244D-448C-9922-25508950D1DC

Click on "Start" > "Run" and type in "regedit" (without quotes) and hit enter.
Allow the registry editor to launch.

Top left, of left column, of registry editor, single click on "computer."

Click on "edit" and "find."

Paste DBD8E168-244D-448C-9922-25508950D1DC in the box and then click on "find next."

The left column will highlight a file and DBD8E168-244D-448C-9922-25508950D1DC should be in the right column. Right click on the highlighted file in the left column and delete.

Click on "Yes."

Exit."

Lately, I have too much month left at the end of the money!

Ignore my previous text here. I was being retarded and searching the registry  on the wrong computer. I'll check it a little later and see if it works. *braindead*
