They are like a virus. They infect your computer and make a damn’ nuisance of themselves by popping up adverts, special offers, upgrade deals and, well, more adverts… Upgrade MovieStudio, Buy Sounds for ACID, Download Stuff for VEGAS, Install Junk I really don’t want for MAGIX Music Maker. The damned adverts pop up at the bottom of the screen almost every time I boot up the computer. If there was ever a way to make the customer hate your products, this is it!
|Does anyone really want to see these ads popping up on their PC every day???|
Actually, I rather like many MAGIX products. But their persistent, irritating, spammy popup adverts are doing their best to make me change my opinion.
|Another day, another ad!!!|
But how do I get rid of them? I couldn’t see an option anywhere to “Disable our Spamware
”. I ended up having to Google for help. I eventually found that I have to uninstall a piece of junkware called MAGIX Connect. Go to Settings, Apps, MAGIX Connect, Uninstall
|Oh joy! Gone at last!|
Hurrah! Now the blasted adverts are gone. What I find truly mysterious about this is that MAGIX can’t see the obvious truth that, far from promoting its software, these nasty, trashy, annoying popups are about the worst sort of bad publicity they could possibly have. As I said, their software is generally good. But as for their Spamware…!!!!
