McAfee TechMate


McAfee TechMate is a software program developed by Sutherland Global Services. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named mcafeetechmate.exe. The setup package generally installs about 16 files and is usually about 16.84 MB (17,655,872 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 91% of users of McAfee TechMate come from the United States, it is also popular in Singapore and India.
