This is the error when I try to login not in safe mode. It's the first thing that pops up, before selecting a user, and i can't get around it

True Key is part of the Mcafee Security which intel purchased and later called Intel Security.

 

You can contact their customer service here. You can start a chat session with True Key support in the dropdown boxes.

 

If you right click the icon on the desktop and select properties. You will see a target location. That may give a hint as to where it is on the computer.

 

You have said that you can boot to safe mode....do that.......and uninstall truekey there.

 

The link above may help provide some insight

Thank you!
I uninstalled truekey and it's now working just fine, what a relief.

What does true key do? Should I try reinstalling it now or is it unnecessary?

Judging by the not so good things i read about it....and the fact that it is actually a product of McAfees......I would stay away from it.

 

If you actually need a Password manager....there are plenty that have stood the test of time

 

Personally I use LastPass

 

Be aware that if you access sites from both your PC and your phone....you will need lastpass installed on both of them....and the second install will cost you $

 

Others include the list HERE

This error message is related to McAfee.  I would uninstall it and then reinstall it if this is the paid version.  If this is the free version I would suggest uninstalling  this and try another free antivirus, my wife uses AVAST free which works for her simple needs, Sopho and Avira are two more decent free antivirus porgrams.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
