    You can also run Stinger with Artemis technology enabled. I'd recommend running Artemis on Very High but in report only mode in the first instance.

    Here's how:

    Go to the preferences button

    For the on virus found options, select the report only radio button.

    From the heuristic network check sensitivity level drop-down menu select very high – this will enable Artemis.

    Note – if the machine does not have an internet connection or external DNS path Artemis will not function.

    Click ok.

    If necessary, click the Add or Browse button to add additional drives/directories to scan. By default the C: drive will be scanned.

    Click the Scan Now button to begin scanning the specified drives/directories.

    If you need assistance interpreting the report please contact support or attach it to a new thread in the community with details of the symptoms you are seeing.
