Did I manage to install without Starforce?

I have been putting off installing Silent Hunter 3 until I could have a dedicated HD to avoid any conflict with any other software. I installed from DVD, ran the 1.4 update and added some additional files to avoid interaction with the drive before I started the game.

The game plays just fine. However when I go to look for any Starforce drivers, they are not there. When I run the latest removal tool from Starforce, it says there are no drivers.

My question is this. Did I manage to avoid the drivers? Am I safe leaving this on my machine?

Thanks guys.
