Re: can we stop fcagte.exe McAfee DLP Endpoint Text Extractor process if we are not using it?

Hello and thank you for posting here!

You can absolutely do this! All that's required is a simple policy configuration change in the Windows Client Configuration policy. In this policy, navigate to Operational Mode and Modules > Operational Mode. Here you'll want to change the option to Device Control Only. As the name implies, this mode will only enable the modules necessary for device control. The fcagte.exe process is not needed when DLP is running in this mode so it will not start. After changing the mode to Device Control Only, apply the policy and update the policy on your clients. This change does require a restart of the DLP service and since manually restarting the service is protected by DLP Watch Dog, a restart of the client system is the easiest way to accomplish this.
