Can't find any info on this one. From what I understand all I need to do to make McAfee work with BartsPE is extract the SuperDAT files into the McAfee Plugin directory. Perhaps I'm wrong. What files are needed in there?

Also, what is the difference between running a scan with regular-ass McAfee from Barts and running McAfee's Stinger?

Does the Stinger not have all the virus DATs? And if it does have all of the DATs, then why even bother with regular-ass?

Evidently Stinger only scans for 45 virii or so. What directory specifically do I need to extract the SuperDAT into? McAfee or McAfee\files?

I carry Barts with me religously..  Did you unpack the SuperDat files?  

From Bart's site:

Copy the file sdatxxxx.exe into the files folder located in the mcafee plugin directory (plugin\mcafee\files).
Now you must unpack it using the "/e" parameter. From the mcafee folder, run sdatxxxx.exe /e (where xxxx is the version number, for example sdat4290.exe). When unpacking you don't see anything happen for about 20 seconds, just wait for it.

Just a follow up on Virii..  At any given time, there are only around 100-150 virii in the wild that we need to be concerned with, and specifically less than 50 that we need to stay on top of, so Stinger was created for a quick way to scan for the most prevelant virii...  

Normal scanning engines use a database of virtually every Virus DAT file that has been released, meaning that their scanning takes much longer, since the database is much larger...

Heh, I RTFM and extracted the crap properly. Works awesome now.

Barts PE is pretty much the coolest thing ever.

Yea, I pretty much agree with you there.  Amazing that Bart does this for free, eh?

Glad you got it, and if you have any other questions, come on back in and ask away..

And thanks..
