does SafeKey Installer have to run at startup?

Hi,

I just downloaded and installed McAfee Security Suite and was checking what loaded at startup with 'msconfig'.  I discovered that in addition to the McAfee Security Suite I also have two identical 'McAfee SafeKey Installer' programs loading as well.

My question is do the 'two SafeKey Installer programs' have to load at startup?  If not, can I just go ahead and disable them?

Thanks and regards,

No it doesn't need to run but Technical Support knows best on that score.  links below.

You could maybe preempt a call to them by running the Virtual Technician to see if it finds and fixes anything:  http://mvt.mcafee.com/

That's fine, It was my other choice anyway. ;-)

Hi Ex_Brit,

Thanks for your response.  I downloaded, updated and ran McAfee Virtual Technician and it found no problems.  Pretty good idea.  I saved it for future use too.

I am going to go ahead and disable the two 'SafeKey Installer' startup programs in 'msconfig' and see if it creates any problems with McAfee.  If it does,  I will post back in this thread.

Thanks and regards,
