Removing the Dell DataSafe Upgrade Discount pop-up

I was baffled by a Dell product pop-up that did not appear to have a way to disable/ignore it...until I unlocked the taskbar and resized it. After that, the entire ad was displayed, including the option "Don't remind me of dicount offerings". Now if I can just get Dell to reimburse 30 minutes of life.

Thank you many times over. I was starting to think about paying money to fix this problem. Dell will lose people by doing stuff like this and I am one of them.

Thanks so much! I switched auto-hide off the task bar, moved it to the bottm and then I could disable this ad!

simply change the screen resolution to a lower level (like 800x600) for temporary basis. Now, you shall be able to see the Dell Datasafe popup in a correct manner. Click on the drop down as shown in the picture and click ‘DO NOT remind me’
After you select Do not remind me, please click OK. Now that the Datasafe notification is stopped, please change the resolution back to the original settings. Restart computer to confirm if the notification appears again or not.
