Stinger - remove the sting from virus and trojan infections


review from ClifNotes, updated Jan 2007, permalink _ Adware & Spyware Removal


McAfee is well known for it's anti-virus software. Usually, you have to pay for their protection. They offer the free Stinger tool to help people clean out infections from PC's that don't have a good anti-virus program, or have had the anti-virus protection disabled somehow. It's a great tool you can use to help your neighbors, family and friends when they've got a problem. There is no installation required. Just download it and run it. It works on all Windows PC's as far as I know.


Quote from the website

Stinger is a stand-alone utility used to detect and remove specific viruses. It is not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but rather a tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with an infected system. Stinger utilizes next generation scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed DAT files, and scan performance optimizations.
