McAfee AVERT 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. It utilizes McAfee scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed DAT files, and scan performance optimizations. It detects more than 40 viruses, trojans and variants. The interface is simple and straightforward, just select the drive or folders to scan and click a button. You can choose an action to perform if a virus is detected (delete, prompt, quarantine or rename) and also configure which types of files to scan.
