    Should I be concerned OOBE Service2 is disabled?

    gregory987

      Hi.  I'm using a McAfee LiveSafe Internet Security which is a free trial that came loaded with my new Windows 8.1 PC.

       

      Strolling through services.msc, I noticed that "McAfee OOBE Service2" is disabled.  I'm not able to start the service nor change the startup type.  Also my scheduled scan has been stuck at 99% "Scanning:  Rootkit" for the last 9 hrs.

       

      I read the 99% hang workaround in another thread but first I needed to know if OOBE Service2 is supposed to be disabled before I proceed.  I'm really concerned by this but I'm not really sure. Any advice?
