Hi there,

from some days I am experimenting an invasive pop up by PDF Architect that shows in the left lower corner, over the tray area / clock.

If I search for the program in the Windows uninstall app I cant find it. Also with CCleaner I have not this program.

I know it is with PDF Creator, but I always verify to unckeck all the options related to the setup of PDF Architect and I had always had a good result.

So I am here to ask for the other users if they also noticed a change in the behavior or this specific behavior.

Furthermore I will be grateful for any clue to how remove this unwanted advertising.

I write here some versioning:

Windows 10 Pro 1511 10586.318
PDFCreator 2.30.103

Thank you!

Click "Non mostrare di nuovo" (Don't show again) does not work!

I managed to see it is server by messenger.exe in C:\ProgramData\pdfforge\PDF Architect 4 Manager\PDF Architect 4 and/or Architect Manager.exe in C:\ProgramData\pdfforge\PDF Architect 4 Manager\PDF Architect 4, both active during the pop up show.

I'll delete "the PDF Architect 4 Manager" folder hoping pdf creator still will work..

I have the same issue only it is December 2016 now.  I run win 10 upgraded from win 7 on a laptop.  recently I started getting pop ups offering I upgrade PDF  Archetect to pro version. I do not have this program on my computer and it is not in the apps for firefox, my browser. Where is it coming from and how do I get rid of it.  PDF Architect does not show up in searches on the computer but it is  in the registry.  I did find and find next and deleted any key that contained PDF Architect. Hopefully this will correct.
