Question [Q] KNOX running in background on Note II even though I have not installed it

I got the 4.3 update a couple days ago. Now I see that the new Samsung KNOX is running in the background automatically and taking up 82mb of RAM! My battery is draining faster after the 4.3 upgrade.

When I go to the KNOX icon it asks me to install it, which I haven't. So I can't figure out why a program I haven't installed is running automatically and being a RAM hog at 82mb.

Any help would be appreciated. I really don't want to have to root the phone if I don't have to. I'm hoping there are some non-root solutons.

Thanks!
