McAfee Stinger is a standalone utility program that is used to detect as well as remove particular viruses, rootkits, and Trojans. It is worth noting that it is not a substitute for the actual anti-viruses but rather a unique tool. This utility has simple features. McAfee Stinger does not require installation. This means that users just need to click its executable file, accept its license agreement and scan their computers. The User Interface is simple to use.
No previous experience with any virus removal software is needed. It has a study scanner which enables users to examine scanned and verified files, the number of files checked, and a list of identified threats. Users can view logs and be able to configure their settings. McAfee Stinger utilizes Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) to detect any new threats and run network heuristics. Users are able to adjust the GTI and view a list of threats.
