How to stop Magix advertising popups

Recycler wrote on 2/20/2023, 4:12 AM

I used Magix video editing software for many years until I discovered Da Vinci Resolve. I have uninstalled anything I could find that was anything to do with Magix, but still I get irritating popups (example attached). Does anyone please have a modern "clear all unwanted Magix bits from a PC" program? I remember one of the Johns (Baker perhaps?) referred to such a thing back in the mists of time.

Sorry to distract you all. I would send this request direct to Magix central but of course they push me out to this Forum. Luckily I had a (dusty) record of my UserID/password.

Thanks for any help. - Mike -

Hi Mike

The popups would be the Magix Connect, also known as Magix Cloud Import, Connect, Update notifier, Network Sync feature.

To completely remove the program use Revo Uninstaller free - it will scan for leftovers and allow you to remove them.

Do note if you are uninstalling MEP/VPX as well and you still have other Magix programs carefully read through the leftovers that it suggests to delete and ensure they apply to MEP/VPX

I remember using Revo for this purpose in the past, but clearly I wasn't meticulous enough in finding every bit of Magix marketing ! I'll have another go.

Many thanks. - Mike -
