    McAfee services run for unknown reason


      I use Windows 8.1 64-bit on a computer where I'm the sole user and administrator.


      Under the Services tab in System Configuration, I can see two services running where the manufacturer is said to be McAfee, Inc. These are

      McAfee Firewall Core Service

      McAfee Validation Trust Protection Service

      I do not remember installing any McAfee software. In Programs and Features in Control Panel, no McAfee software is listed. According to Windows Firewall, the ordinary Windows firewall is in use.


      Are the services genuine? Why are they on the computer?
