portable anti-virus scanner McAfee Stinger is a standalone anti-virus scanner to detect and remove specific viruses. It is not a substitute for full featured anti-virus protection, but rather a tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with an infected system. The program utilizes McAfee scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed DAT files, and scan performance optimizations. Stinger detects more than 3000 viruses, Trojans and variants as well as malware that masquerades as a legitimate security application (Fake Alerts). The McAfee Stinger interface is simple and straightforward, simply select the drive or folders to scan and click a button. You can choose an action to perform if a virus is detected (delete, prompt, quarantine or rename) and also configure which type of files to scan. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Good for specific malware 4 stars by dvdshonna96 Apr 22, 2016 (Read all my 11 reviews)
Stinger may provide help, getting rid of specific malware. And the specific malware threats are listed. But beware. Setting the "GTI" sensitivity to high or very high will lead to a lot of false positives (malware you won't see on the threat list). If you set the sensitivity to high or very high, MAKE SURE stinger is set to "report" (not "remove" or "repair"). Being a novice, I reloaded my OS on the first false positive. After a series of false positives, I decided to do a little research on how the program works and no longer use highvery high sensitivity scans. show Review details
Does the job ! 3 stars by jesusimperat Aug 27, 2006 (Read all my 27 reviews)
Be aware that that tool scans only for a limited number of viruses and variants but it do it well. Fast but need a lot of system resources. No sufficient upgrades, so for the well-know viruses this is ok but for the rest ... show Review details
This is a must have tool!! 5 stars by ecmoe56 Jun 10, 2005
I was very skeptical about these different device's to use in my pc. but hay this tool found something I was not expecting. I had a nasty Virus called a Bagel in my pc and this tool found it , took it out and repaired the damage that was done. I am now up and running again and it's all due to this Macafee Avert Stinger. it truly is a great Item to have and Download. Tech Support couldnt even tell me I had a virus it took this tool to do it. MacAfee is the Best. Thank You so much.. show Review details
