McAfee Stinger is a standalone utility used to detect and remove specific viruses. It is not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but a specialized tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with infected system.

An important aspect worth taking into account is that, unlike most installers, McAfee Stinger does not modify Windows registry settings.

Please note, Stinger only detects the most common malware specimens, and offers no real-time protection measures at all, so it’s no substitute for a full antivirus package.

The list of viruses that McAfee Stinger can eliminate includes prominent names like the following: W32/Bagle, W32/Blaster, W32/Bugbear, W32/Conficker, W32/Mydoom, W32/Netsky, W32/Sasser.worm, W32/Sober, W32/Spybot.

The tool uses moderate RAM and low CPU during scanning, which may take a while, depending on the target’s size.
