Help White Smoke Spams My Compuiter.

by agniredux / December 4, 2009 1:10 PM PST

I keep getting popup ads in ms-word whenever I use White Smoke. They are dumping spam directly on my computer. Does anyone know how to stop it.

They don't merely hit my email address they hit my computer directly. I have White Smoke 2009 and I either ads for White Smoke 2010 or for their White Smoke Translator keeps popping up. I have complained and White Smoke never responses. I have seem other complaints on the net also.

Does WhiteSmoke offer any options to limit or prevent these popups?

I didn't notice a don't show this message again option because I would close the window right away, Maybe there its not a problem.
