McAfee Stinger is a portable and free application designed to remove malware-infected files from the computer.

It scans the hard disk on demand and detects viruses, rootkits, Trojans, worms, and other e-threats.

Stinger is very basic. Add the paths that you want to scan and hit the red Scan Now button. The program works quickly, summarizing results in the interface window.

By default, Stinger will repair any viruses it finds, and you can export scan results under the File menu.

Nevertheless, users are welcomed to try McAfee Stinger for themselves and figure out if it’s a suitable on-demand virus scanner for them.

Just keep in mind that it does not provide real-time protection against malware, so you still have to install an all-round antivirus application to keep the PC safe at all times.
