Annoying popup ads from corel


14 Jan 2018 12:52PM
Having installed corel products, I am getting adverts sliding in from the right of my desktop even when the programs are not open.
Corel themselves are not very helpful however one tech did let a fix slip to another user who in turn shared it.
So far it has worked so I'm sharing too.

1. Open up a run prompt by holding down the windows key on your keyboard + the letter "r"
2. Type Taskschd.msc and press ok.
3. Once the Task Scheduler app appears highlight the Task Scheduler Library Folder towards the top left.
4. The box on the right will show you what programs have scheduled tasks.
5. Locate the Corel tasks, there should be two of them and right click on it.
6. Choose delete
7. Close the window.
8. Restart the computer

Fingers crossed.

That firm were once a massive player in the industry, Corel Draw was an industry standard, sounds like desperate times for them now.
