McAfee Stinger


McAfee Stinger offers a rather strange interface. The program runs in a square window that you cannot enlarge or make smaller; it offers a simplified menu with Scan, Quarantine, Log and Advanced options only and they do not offer any extended functionality except from the one listed in their names. You can still customize your scan so there's a degree of flexibility in this program. The interface description concludes with a big red Scan button right in the middle of it – click on it to start scanning your PC.

Basic Operations

It is extremely easy to work with McAfee Stinger due to its small size and simplified interface. All you have to do is click on the big, red Scan button and wait for the results. Fortunately the program is very fast so it won't take long for it to display results. A serious downside to this program, however, is that there's no way to update it and that it comes with a limited list of viruses – hence the overall basic functionality of this app is somewhat limited.


McAfee Stinger is a nice software tool for detecting and eliminating popular viruses. It is by no means a fully functional anti-virus program, coming with basic functionality and a limited list of viruses and malicious software but it will do the job in extreme situations. There's nothing to lose so why not try it – we are sure you will like it.
