Hove you actually tried McAfee Stinger lately after Intel gave it a complete over-haul?malbky said:GMER along with TDSS killer is one of the best rootkit removers. I have used this quite a few times.
Does version 2 have new GUI. The old GUI simply is complex. But anyway it was not intended for noobs.
Thanks for the heads up. I will be adding the new version to my USB arsenal soon.
The only problem with McAfee Avert Stinger is it takes too long and also scans and removes only commonly known malware. I given up using stinger. In some cases Pandas active scan via internet seems to be faster. Bitdefender is one of the slowest online scanners.
It scans are very fast, its detection is better than most of the other scanners because it uses several AV engines and technologies from several other security vendors not just McAfee anymore.
I have remove several Zero Access infections with no problems at all, compared to all of these advanced guides which usually don't work.
It also does excellent with rogue fake security products and ransomware.
Intel did an excellent job improving it, now lets see if they can improve McAfee's other products.
