Re: " mcafee stinger has been modified and may be infected "

I would like to suggest a tip.
Download a Knoppix 8.1 .iso on an external computer and install it on USB.
ClamAv virus scanner has been in the system since Knoppix 7.2.
Start the USB with Knoppix. 
then you open the terminal and enter these commands:

You can take Krogerfeedback . Then select your preferred language and change it to user-friendly. Now secure the valid receipt and keep the receipt beside. Give the Complete Entry ID, Date of Visit and Time then Click on START. Make sure that enter accurate information so that you don’t face any difficulties further. Just give the genuine answers for all the questions asked in sweepstakes. You can give honest answers based on your experience at the Kroger stores. After the process is complete, click on submit button. The fuel points will be credited when you redeem the code you saved . Note that you can redeem your voucher instantly only on your next visit within 15 days. You don’t need to avoid negative or positive feedback altogether

cd sda /
clamscan -i -r >> clamscan.txt

from Windows 7 you have 2 partitions then you have to enter sda2 /.
With these commands you cannot remove viruses but in the clamscan.txt you can see whether files are infected and which ones.
