@hashssj McAfee Validation Trust Protection Service as a Service does not have to be in automatic nor running in order for mfevtps.exe (the process which actually serves as validator) to be active and running on the system. It should not be expected to be an indicator of status of the process. The service still shows and is present as an option for legacy compatiblity when necessary.

    If you look in Task Manager and see that mfevtps.exe (McAfee Process Validation Service) is running, then all is well and you should not be concerned about the status of the similarly named item within services.msc
