 Security Stinger - remove the sting from virus and trojan infections
Website - Download - Freeware
McAfee is well known for it's anti-virus software. Usually, you have to pay for their protection. They offer a free Stinger tool program to help people clean out infections from PC's that don't have a good anti-virus tool, or have had the tools disabled somehow. It's a great tool you can use to help your neighbors, family and friends when they've got a problem. There is no installation required. Just download it and run it. It works on all Windows PC's as far as I know.

Quote from the website - Stinger is a stand-alone utility used to detect and remove specific viruses. It is not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but rather a tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with an infected system. Stinger utilizes next generation scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed DAT files, and scan performance optimizations.
