I've been a Painter user since v.5. I greatly enjoy Painter 2020 and have been upgrading every year for many years. However, this is all going to change, since Corel has snuck in some extremely disgusting pop-up ads to buy Painter 2021 onto my computer. They pop up at any time, no matter what I am doing on my computer. In the middle of my work, in meetings, anywhere.
With this in-my-face attack, I shall no longer buy Corel products. This is rude and reprehensible.
I asked them to kindly remove their ads, they will not do so. They tell me to do a bunch of programming-type operations to remove it. I say bullpucky! You take the disgusting things off my machine, you put them there!

Top bar, under Help, Message Settings you can turn them all off.
Not the OP, but I have unchecked/disabled everything there, but this still showed up for me today after I tried to close the program:
I reopened it just to double-check:
Are there any other settings somewhere I may have neglected?
the auto-launching CUH process (that you'll generally only need about once a year, once the service pack is rolled out) does that, see the guide above to exorcise it - it won't corrupt your painter experience if deleted.
Thanks, that's a relief to know. I'm nervous about editing files.
