Default McAfee stinger virus remover

after working on a pc that would not run any exe , pif , bat and com files today i found this rool from McAfee that will remove most of the current virus's doing the rounds today.


the problem i had was the swen virus had changed the registry entries for the above file extensions stopping anything from running including norton , msconfig , scanreg ext.

the stinger program will scan and remove the following nastys.
