I seem to have Message folders everywhere, none readable: where Ken said, where Kathy said, in AppData/Local.
Had PS3, PSP3; Installed: PSP-4.12, 5.03, 6.02, 7.04 (liked it a lot & used it for years), 9.00, 10, 11, x4, x6, x7, x8, x9; now using PSPx10 (PSP 2018; version 20.2.0.1 x64) on Win 10-64; rejected PSP 2019.

Corel - Listen Up!

There is a complete thread of annoyed users (you know those people who keep you in business) because of your intrusive ad popups. I just purchased a number of products via upgrade (based on an EMAIL ad), and now I'm like the rest here - I can't stop the ad popups. And since I purchased numerous products, I have to go into each one to turn off. And of course, like everyone else, that doesn't work! Serious, this is:

  • Extremely Unprofessional for a company of your reputation
  • Annoying to the point I will never consider another upgrade, let alone new products
  • Driving business away from your products, not to them
  • The brainchild of an idiot (we get email ads, ads when we open your software and Operating System Popup ads - imagine our user experience if every software vendor did this!)
  • Makes you an embarrassment as a professional company (did you hire the guy from the 90's that ran the X10 spam ads)
  • I believe may put you in violation of GDPR, if considered via the intrusive nature of installing to the OS without permission

Act like an adult:

  • Apologize to all your customers
  • Push an update that removes these OS popups
  • Let people opt-in for email and program startup ads

In addition to all of this, there is the price, which keeps fluctuating.

This may help... copy and paste the following to a .reg file. Double click it and let it make these registry changes...


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Corel\CUH\Current Version]
"Communication"="disabled"

[Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"Corel Update Helper"=-
"ParticleShop Update Helper"=-
