I tried uninstalling Intel True Key, but all I find is Intel Graphics Driver, Intel Management Engine Component, Intel USB 3.0 Extensible host controller driver.


The first time I unstalled it (I thought) it went away and came right back.  I think this thing is trying to drive me crazy!  Help.


I uninstalled my 2 Adobe files too.........

Search for the following file, Mcafee.TrueKey.Uninstaller.exe. If you cab't find it using Windows 7 search use the search tool Everything.


If the file is not found contact Support.

There are instructions for removing Intel True Key at How to remove True Key by Intel Security - gHacks Tech News


After you have uninstalled either the Flash program or Mcafee program that True Key was bundled with....


Note: This may not remove the True Key service called InstallerWrapperService, nor some files in the True Key directory. It should remove the service and the files when you shutdown the PC fully and start it again.

If not, do the following to check for the service's and the True Key folder's existence.


  1. Tap on the Windows-key, type services.msc and hit the Enter-key to open the Services Manager.
  2. Locate the service "Service Installer Wrapper TrueKey" in the listing. If the listing is not sorted by name, click on the name column header to do so.
  3. Right-click on the service, and select Stop.
  4. Go to C:\Program Files\TrueKey afterwards.
  5. You will find the following files there despite running the uninstallation on the system: config.ini, InstallerWrapperService.exe, InstallerWrapperService.exe.config, and Mcafree.TrueKey.InstallerService.exe
  6. Delete those files.
