McAfee Stinger Portable screenshotMcAfee Stinger removes 6000 popular viruses and fake alert malware on-demand. It is not a substitute for a complete antivirus, but useful in many situations. McAfee Stinger is freeware for home usage and business use and needs admin rights.

McAfee Stinger is unavailable as the actual release installs a malware-like application on every computer a scan is run on. The 'McAfee Validation Trust Protection Service' (mfevtps.exe) is installed to your local computer without a conspicuous notice to the user. It can not be removed from the system and has no entry in Add/Remove Programs or Uninstall a Program. It works as a service as Microsoft Windows boots. The service cannot be stopped using the Microsoft Windows Services tool.

Features:

McAfee Stinger finds and deletes common Fake Alert malware and threats recognized in the "List Viruses" section of the Stinger tool. While not a substitute for complete fledged antivirus programs, Stinger is updated many times a week to contain detection for newer Fake Alert variants and frequent viruses. Note that infected and suspicious files will be quarantined to C:QuarantineStinger and a database will be created for the currently scanned computer in that location.

Pros

  • The program is lightweight and portable.
  • The application helps you better protect your computer.
