How Can I Get Rid of the Annoying Marketing Splash Screen on Startup

Hi Everyone,

I have recently reinstalled Corel Draw X4, following construction of a new PC. (Fully activated, patched, registered, updated, and everything else too.)

I am running Win7 Home Prem 64bit. (Also fully legit, patched and everything.)

Now, periodically, when I start Photo-paint, a splash-screen appears, encouraging me to lash out more money on Corel products.

I contacted Corel but, as this product is no longer supported, they declined to help, although they did point me in the direction of a file <CUH_opt_out_V1.reg> which is/was meant to get rid of this annoyance by adding something to, or modifying, the Registry.

It did appear to work, for a while, but has (last 72 hours) since returned.

I have made NO alterations to my machine, I have added NO software -- it has simply happened.

Could someone please put me out my misery and tell me how to get rid of this unwanted and undesirable advertising invasion --- once and for all? (It is probably the most successful advertisement ever -- in making people purchase Adobe products.)

Thank you,
