After installing any Adobe product, you noticed True Key installed on your computer along with McAfee Scan Plus or other without your consent? Blame yourself for not checking the optional software that Adobe offered when you tried to download one of their products, such as Flash player or Adobe Reader or Adobe AIR.
To prevent this from happening again, next time use Unchecky or pay attention while downloading or installing these apps. If you no longer need the True key, here’s how to uninstall it.
Uninstall or remove the True key by Intel Security
Close any or all browsers if they are already open
1. Visit Control panell > Software > Programs and features,
2. Select Intel Security True Key and click Uninstall/Change.
3. Click on ‘To remove’ button, if any browsers or more open, you will see a prompt to close them, please do so.
4. Wait a few minutes for the True Key uninstall process to complete, then restart your computer when prompted.
Tip: We suggest you use Revo Uninstaller Free to get rid of True Key by choosing ‘Advanced Mode’, this not only uninstalls the application but also removes the remaining True Key related entries in the registry after its uninstall.
