In the past I installed gpg4win v3.1.3 with gpg v2.2.10 on 64bit Windows 7
Later I made a copy of the whole installation directory, then uninstalled the original gpg4win installation and moved afterwards the mentioned previous
backup to the original directory and restarted Win7.
When I investigate now the process list then after a couple of minutes I can see always a gpg-agent.exe daemon running.
This is strange since I uninstalled gpg4win (which should remove all services as well).
Furthermore I found no auto-start entry. and even worse I found no registry entry containing pattern “gpg-agent”.
So what does gpg-agent.exe start???
Why is gpg-agent.exe started at all?
Can it be that Thunderbird (With Enigmail) start it?
Or another valid, trustful program outside of gpg4win (e.g.stunnel) ?
