"Fine scanner, but hard to uninstall!"

April 28, 2015  |  By bbcomp

 |  Version: McAfee Labs Stinger 12.0.0.499

Pros

-Seems like a decent on-demand scanner.
-Raptor beta may be a good way to get a free heuristics/behavior blocker

Cons

-There are many other on-demand scanners
-Raptor might have high system impact, depending on your specs
-mfevtps.exe constantly running on system (using ~10mb RAM), even after removing Raptor component...shouldn't happen with a free, portable scanner! I had to use McAfee's removal tool to get rid of it.

Summary

The mfevtps may only occur with raptor, I'm not sure, but search online for stinger and mfevtps and you will see others have this issue. Check in task manager to see if this is running. Should not be advertised as portable and then install persistent process in system32 directory...big no no.
