ActiveMARK is a software application distributed by Trymedia that allows PC game developers and distributors to lock their software using a digital rights management (DRM) encryption system. The system does not require any special code development on the part of the distributor, as the files are encased in a locked program that can only be decoded with a valid license that the ActiveMARK application will recognise. The ActiveMARK service runs as a background task on

your computer all the time, even when you are not using it. Disabling the ActiveMARK application from starting with your system will prevent you from playing ActiveMARK protected games.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

  4. 4

    Right-click the entry labelled "ActiveMARK" on the right panel of the window. It will be of type "REG_SZ." Click "Delete," then click "Yes" to confirm the action. The start-up entry for ActiveMARK has now been removed.
