The price of their software makes it hard to resist. I bought a few of their products years ago. Recently ads started popping up in Windows (not on a web browser, but just in the right corner of my monitor. Those ads were for Corel products and would float over all other panes in my Windows.
How sleazy is that?!
So I found a way to get rid of the ads for good. Or at least until you install another Corel product. If this happens to you, and you find it as annoying as I do, follow this instruction. First, hit control (+) alt (+) delete and select task manager at the bottom. If you look at your task manager, you'll see something called "background processes". Find the item Corel Update. Right click on it, then select "open file location." Then repeat the last step (find the Corel updater and right click) but this time hit "end task." Then go back to the file location and delete the Corel updater file (the file that Open File Location found- in my case the exe file was called CUH.exe.)
