McAfee Stinger is awesome!
Hi,
Downloaded McAfee Stinger and it listed 193 viruses.  It has a "Copy Data" button, but it does nothing.  What do I do now?  There is an "Add", "Browse", and "Remove" button.   Under preferences, it is supposed to "Repair on virus detection.  Please advise.

Thanks,
Joe
Joe - Stinger will 'auto-delete/repair' any infected file it finds.

Usually, I will use Stinger to get me to the point where I can at least get an infected computer to go on-line for a Trend 'house-call' or some other Security site where I can get some help.

Update the AV and anti-spyware apps your friend is running and then re-boot to 'Safe Mode' and do a complete system scan in safe mode.

If your friend doesn't have anything, get AVG free and SuperAntiSpyware free and use those.

It is also a good idea to download and run HiJackThis from Trend and then post the log in our HJT Zone here on EE.

Thanks for the points - I was just concurring with the previous post.

Good luck with this one.
