Windows 7: Is there any way to remove this pop-up. Network Magic.

Is there any way to remove this pop-up. Network Magic.

New Cisco router. Linksys. Few months ago. All works properly.

OK. I failed to read every prompt when installing.

Network Magic. I had no clue what this is or was. Anyway, I don't want nor need this.

How do I remove, delete, hide this pop-up I get on turn on every few days. A dialog box comes up stating that my trial version of Network Magic has expired. All I want to do is get rid of this annoying pop-up. Any ideas? Other than starting all over again with this router.

Here is what Cisco states on their website:

"You are receiving a window from Network Magic when you boot up your computer notifying you that your trial has expired because you are using the free version of Network Magic, and your trial period has ended. ( )
In the initial release of 4.5 this reminder occurred every day. Due to the feedback we've received, we've released a new version of Network Magic that only offers the reminder once every four days. It is available for download:
Updated Network Magic"

Here is the link to that page: LINK

All I wish to do is delete or remove or hide the pop-up dialog box that appears every few days that states that my trial period has ended. Is there any way to accomplish this other than uninstalling all the router software? From what I read uninstalling Network Magic could/may screw up my router operations.

Go to Msconfig and disable nmctxth.exe as a startup item and restart your computer.

If you do not use Network Magic you should be able to uninstall it with no trouble. Does in show up in Control Panel>Programs and Features (screenshot)
