Hi everyone.
Just booted up my Desk top PC (windows 8.1) to find message on my desk top 'True Key' has been installed!
Worried might be a virus etc I googled 'true key' to learn it is an intel programme and has got some uncomplimentary comments! Such as is clumsy and slows down your PC.
I am annoyed that this programme has been able to install on my PC without my permission!
Anyway I have managed to uninstall it but would like anyone's advice?comments on this.
Also a bit worrying is at least one person (Windows 10 user) on the Google forum has experienced True Key keeps re installing Hope this is not so in my case but I will know next time I restart my PC.
Your thoughts please.
Thanks
Ray

Hi Ray,

"True Key" is a "legitimate" piece of software from Intel Security.
It was probably piggy-backed onto something else that you installed.

It is a password manager and the free version allows up to 15 passwords to be stored.
After that - you have to pay.

If you have uninstalled it - that should be the last you see of it. :)

Try Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Reader



This is why I state..... Unclick the optional offer of installing McAfee Security Scan and True Key™ by Intel Security before clicking Install now.
