It seems like just about every day one or more popups show up on my desktop, usually in the lower left of the screen, trying to get me to buy a Corel product, in some cases for products that I already have! The latest one, which popped up a few minutes ago, doesn't have a close "x" included so I can get rid of it. I am about ready to go to Adobe products even though I have been using Corel Graphics suites since about version 3.
How funny! I am having the same issue on both my PC's. I am just about to go viral on this issue to highlight how corelDRAW is employing unethical tactics to promote its products.
I had this ad from corelDRAW stuck on the side of my screen the whole day. Just cant shed it off. It's on both of my PC's that I have CorelDRAW installed. If this is a new tactic employed by corelDRAW to force me buy this product - its not working as now I am simply annoyed of the inversion.
This is what happens when they offshore some of their back-office functions such as customer service and sales to countries who have no respect for privacy and would do anything to sell their products.
I wonder if there is a way to remove this trash from my PC?
I got rid of it by using C:\Windows\System32\taskmgr.exe.I keep shortcut of this file on the desktop.
Ding Dong the witch is dead. No more pop ups1. Open up a run prompt by holding down the windows key on your keyboard + the letter "r" 2. Type into the field Taskschd.msc and press OK3. The Task Scheduler opens, now highlight the Task Scheduler Library Folder towards the top left. 4. The box on the right will now show you what programs have scheduled tasks. 5. Locate all the Corel tasks, I found 4 of them, and right click on it and choose delete. 7. Close the window. 8. Restart the computer9. Malware removed....Screen is clean again.

I was with you until you blamed this on "offshoring". As if Corel is unaware of all this trouble. It's is Corel who is disrespecting it's paying customers. Not somebody "offshore".
