Intel Management Engine Components

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me what Intel Management Engine Components does exactly? I installed it when I got my new computer 2 months ago but I still have no idea what it does even after googling it.

In Add/Remove I have three different programs listed which all seem to have been installed with Intel ME:


Intel Management Engine Components
Intel Manageability Engine Firmware Recovery Agent
Intel Trusted Connect Service Client


Is it safe to uninstall all of these and in which order should I do it?

It's a remote management component for vPRO. Most people will never use it.

I don't install the software, only the driver to get rid of the missing device errors.
