This is the portable edition of McAfee Stinger – an antivirus application that bundles several options for letting you personalize a scanning and virus removal procedure.

McAfee Stinger removes 6,000 common viruses and ‘fake alert’ malware on-demand. It is not a replacement for a full antivirus, but handy in many situations.

McAfee Stinger is a standalone utility used to detect and remove specific viruses.

The program utilizes McAfee scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed DAT files, and scan performance optimizations.

All in all, McAfee Stinger brings forward a simple and effective method to remove viruses and malware from an infected computer, and it doesn’t affect Windows stability, mostly thanks to its portability.
