It's the advertisement thing that says you can continue or buy now. I get it too. I don't really think there's much that you can do about it. After all, they DO want you to buy it.

DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING IN THE REGISTRY!! Go to this key and find the reference to blinds and delete it. BACK UP BEFORE DELETING ANYTHING!!
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Win dows\CurrentVersion\run
