    "Excellent safety valve"

    August 12, 2013   |   By dashnn

    Version: McAfee Labs Stinger


    Some malware, trojans, etc. will block access to common anti-virus software. Stinger runs in the background and can often avert a disaster by letting you run it stand-alone outside of Windows or in DOS mode if necessary to zap a virus. I've used it for years and it has been my salvation many times.


    Can't think of any cons.


    When hackers are trying to bypass virus software they are usually looking at the more common programs, like McAfee and Norton. Stinger is a lesser known product and not usually affected by malware, trojans, etc. It's an excellent tool to have in your bag of tricks.
