McAfee Stinger Review

Tina de Pierre
Removes specific types of viruses from your system
A review of McAfee Stinger by Tina de Pierre

McAfee's Stinger application is a very specific virus detection program which currently supports around 3,000 different viruses.

Unlike full antivirus products, Stinger does not protect against a large list of known viruses and acts simply as a freeware product to detect certain types of viruses currently floating around the web.

The actual application interface is far from user-friendly, and is generally used by certain online forums to provide more feedback on what might be installed on your system.

If you know about McAfee Stinger, then you're likely competent in using it. If not, then more comprehensive freeware antivirus solutions are certainly available.

McAfee Stinger is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from antivirus without restrictions. McAfee Stinger is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).

This antivirus detection software is filed under:

  • Major release: McAfee Stinger 12.1

Compatibility with this antivirus detection software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from McAfee.
