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. McAfee Labs 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. The GUI is user-friendly, made from a regular window with a neatly organized layout. By default, the application looks only into system areas where viruses are known to hide, such as program files and the Windows directory. However, you may customize the scan and reduce its duration by handpicking a drive or directory. Stinger utilizes next generation scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed DAT files, and scan performance optimizations.

The tool uses moderate RAM and low CPU during scanning, which may take a while, depending on the target's size. However, we have come across some issues in our tests. McAfee Stinger wouldn't take into account the custom locations we assigned for scanning, and kept running in default mode instead.
