After installing any Adobe Product, noticed True Key installed on your computer along with McAfee Scan Plus or other without your consent? Blame yourself for not checking the optional software, Adobe has offered when you tried to download one of their products such as Flash player or Adobe Reader or Adobe AIR.

To avoid this from happening again, next time, use Unchecky or pay attention while you’re downloading or installing such applications. If you no longer need True key, here is how uninstall it.
