Disabling ****** ads

Jesper-Bjerregaard wrote on 9/14/2020, 4:18 PM

Hi,

 

I just installed a bunch of MAGIX software that I bought in a bundle. And now I keep getting ads saying I should buy upgrades. How do I get rid of this ****? I have uninstalled the update software, and I have disabled all startup programs relating to MAGIX, but the **** keeps popping up!

 

WHY would you make paid for software behave like this? This is beyond stupid. How do I get rid of this advertisement nightmare? Help please!

@Jesper-Bjerregaard Look in your Preferences and see if there's an option like this.

Uncheck it if there is and see if this stops your 'expletives'

@Jesper-Bjerregaard
In the settings you can access the Update Notifier from Magix and choose which reminders you want and which you don't.
For my part, I am happy when I receive a reminder for software that I want to update regularly.



By the way: The ***** would not have needed it in your question.
In contrast to some other forums, you can also discuss factually in this forum.
Just a suggestion for the next time.

@walter-i. @Jesper-Bjerregaard You still need to observe community rules. For instance Rule No.1 - use of coarse language.
Insults, coarse language, and harassment of any kind toward other community members is forbidden.

Are you addressing me with that too?

@walter-i. Not directly. I tagged you because I got the impression that you were indicating to @Jesper-Bjerregaard that he didn’t need to use asterisks instead of expletives. If my impression was wrong I apologise.

vkmast wrote on 9/16/2020, 3:28 AM

@Jack S @walter-i. asterisks were due to moderating according to CR #1. Unfortunately the reason is not always shown in the "Last changed" part.

Jack S wrote on 9/16/2020, 3:36 AM

@vkmast Thanks for pointing that out. I pretty much jumped the gun on that one. I should have paid more attention to the ‘last changed by’ text. My apologies.

Hi @Jack S, thanks for the help. Your initial comment was very helpful. Regarding this:

@Jesper-Bjerregaard You still need to observe community rules. For instance Rule No.1 - use of coarse language.

The rule you are referring to is not relevant; as my coarse language is not directed toward a community member. It was an expression of frustration due to unwanted intrusive behavior of the software in question. I don't know if there are any community rules about using profanities in general; e.g. when expressing frustration with behavior of software.

@walter-i. Thanks for the input. But like I wrote in my initial post, I had already uninstalled the software used for updating (Update Notifier). And the pop-up that kept appearing on my desktop was an add telling me to buy ("update to") a newer version of the software for 199$, which I doubt anyone would find helpful after seeing and closing it the first time.

@Jesper-Bjerregaard

Thanks for the suggestion. I'd generally be happy to discuss in a formal and factual manner, however, this feature just got under my skin. I don't enjoy it when paid software pushes adds on my desktop every time I turn on my computer with no obvious way of disabling it. So I don't regret using the written profanities in this case

@Jesper-Bjerregaard
I'm glad you have principles.
I also have some:
For example, I don't help someone who thinks he have to constantly adorn his statements with strong expressions, a second time.
I have other nice things to do.

Good luck!

I don't understand why you tried to help me in the first place if my language offended you that much. It was a question posted in a general forum not directed at you in any way.

Anyway, since you took the liberty of commenting on how you feel I should conduct myself, I hope you won't take offence for me making you a suggestion of my own:

If you see a post that offends you in any way, you don't have to comment on it. You are free to spend your time on some of the other "nice things" you mentioned above.

Good luck to you too J

Since it was your first post in this forum, I wanted to tell you that there are rules of behavior here - which are not really observed in so many other forums.

And just pointing out the rules without giving any assistance, that's not my style.

Hi @DougT

Like I mentioned earlier (when this rule was posted); the rule you are referring to addresses insults, coarse language, and harassment towards other community members. I was criticising an invasive software feature.

Avoid provoking other members and keep your comments factual and objective.

This however is interesting seeing as moderating how other people chose to describe an issues (if you are in fact not a moderator) seems to violate the rules.

Also, if you would be so kind, please provide a link to these rules. I have scoured the forum for the rules, but I haven't been able to find them anywhere.
