Yet another person who uninstalled the app after getting incessant and huge popups in the lower right corner of the screen. Five pop ups, and I was done, and uninstalled it from the company laptop. I had never even run the application before I was sick of it. Hell, I’m not even sure what version or even what package was installed. It was deleted with extreme prejudice.
Spam within the application, when I’m working it is one thing, like during the splash screen on opening, or a banner tucked in a non obtrusive frame. For a paid app, or when I’m not using your app - hell no.
Too bad I’m still getting the popups, so now I’m here to find a fix.
Whomever thought it was a good idea should be informed otherwise, preferably with a clenched fist and gritted teeth. I’m about to uninstall Avast for the same damn reason.
I can’t enter the control panel for software that’s no longer installed. Hopefully I stumble on a fix in here, or I’ll have to have IT re-image the system, and scrub this app from their master.
Services shows that there’s 4 items running named PDF Architect 5 (something) after uninstalling. The tip above to sc delete “PDF Architect 5 Manager” left the last one “Disabled”, but still in my system.
