Big Brother Corel Draw may be watching you...

Saw this on usenet:

Just a heads up that JASC PSP v XI installs "Protexis" drm software on
XP PCs. Uninstalling the PSP XI trial still leaves Protexis installed,
running as a service.
Service can be disabled by entering at the command prompt:
sc delete ProtexisLicensing
(You can then delete the PSIService.exe and PSIKey.dll file from your
System32 directory - also delete the C:\Program Files\Corel\Corel Paint
Shop Pro Photo XI - Installation Files directory - left behind by the
uninstaller - the Protexis sneakware is packed in the Data1.cab file in
that directory)
I do not know if the EULA mentioned that the program would install drm
software that cannot be deleted by the user using normal means.
The EULA appeared on my computer as:

(silly me thinking that Corel could be trusted)
