McAfee Stinger Is Here To Keep Your PC Free From Malwares
McAfee Stinger is a portable application which has been designed to remove malwares and infected files from your computer. The application scans the hard disk of the computer on demand and identifies viruses, Trojans, rootkits, worms and all kind of e-threats.
As you need not to set up the file, you can drop the file anywhere on your computer hard disk and run the tool immediately for execution. You can also save the McAfee Stinger to a pen drive and check the suspicious computer by scanning it. For that you need not to install the software.
You can’t read the storage devices because of generation of some automatic files by the apps while the app is running. The most important thing is that McAfee Stinger never modifies Widows registry setting unlike most of the installers.
The GUI of the application is userfriendly and prepared from a regular window with an organized layout. The application by default searches the system areas – program files and Windows directory – where the viruses are known to hide. But you can customize the scan and reduce the time duration by picking up a drive or directory.
Currently verified file, total number of file scanned and scan time you can see while scanning. You can also view the threat that it has cleaned. All kind of suspicious files are transferred to quarantine. As a result you can make decision which one to remove and which one not. You may examine the log details in the separate files. You can also modify the default location of the quarantines and send all files to the logs.
McAfee Stinger uses very low CPU and moderate RAM at the time of scanning that may take a while because of depending on the size of targeted files. One thing you have to remember that McAfee Stinger does not give you real-time protection against viruses. Therefore, you have to install all-round antivirus software to keep your computer safe at all the times.
