Hi, this is something that REALLY bothers me.
When I login to Windows, even though no Corel app is running or has an entry on startup items, I get ads. ADS????? I paid almost a thousand euro to upgrade all our PCs!!!
I also get ADS when I open the app, until a month ago I had the list of most used files, now all I get is a full screen AD for the new corel.
There is any way to disable this?
Contacted support, I got told ADS are FORCED and there's no way to disable them.
Option 1(Windows 10, 64 bit)
Open Corel Draw 2019 > Help > Message Settings > Disable: Keep me informed .... > Disable: Automatically download... > Receive updates/ offers as tray notifications: Do not show me tray messages for this application > Ok
Option 2(Windows 10, 64 bit):
Open Control Panel > View by: Category: Large Icons > Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler > Task Scheduler Library > Select CorelUpdateHelper Task(Middle Side) > Right Click > Delete > Close
Option 3(Windows 10, 64 bit ):
Open Control Panel > View by: Category > System Security > Windows Defender Firewal > Advanced Setting(Left Side) > Outband Rules(Left Side) > Actions: New Rule(Right Side) > Enable: Program > Next > Enable: This Program Path > Browse > C:/Program Files/ Corel/ Corel Draw Graphic Suite/Programs64 > Select CorelDrw > Open > Next > Enable:Block Connection > Next > Enable: Domain, Private, Public > Next > Name: write Corel Draw > Finish
Repeat all these steps for PhotoPaint, Corel Font Manager
