    Best place to download "stinger" from ?

      Besides finding stinger, I need to load it onto a memory stick (flash drive).  That's because I have a "porno.org" malware that has my desktop computer (not this laptop) tied up in knots.  The IE browser comes on by itself with "porno.org".  Then there's a poor copy of the microsoft shield (green with 2 diagonal lines starting midway between top and center of right side, sloping down to mid-point of center and bottom of left side).  There are constant pop-ups wanting me to install/buy anti-virus software (probably more malware) to clean up infections to McAfee programs (which indeed do not work).  I was suppossed to get a link via E-Mail for "stinger" from McAfee Technical Support, but that never happened.  When I went to the user community I observed a looooooooong list of workarounds (it looked like anyways) of solutions that were not the same.

          Hey, you can download stinger Here tho i don't know how much that will help, i think you will get better results with Malwarebytes , run a scan with it and remove all it finds.

            If you suspect you're infected, and have trouble finding what is causing the infection, I'd suggest giving this handy tool a try.

             

            "McAfee GetSusp is intended for users who suspect undetected malware on their system. By using a combination of clever heuristics and querying McAfee's online database of known clean files to gather suspicious files, GetSusp eliminates the user's need for deep technical knowledge of computer systems to isolate undetected malware. McAfee GetSusp is recommended as a tool of first choice when analyzing a suspect machine."

             

            GetSusp is designed to flag malware that Malwarebytes and other security software fail to detect. Get it from here:
            https://community.mcafee.com/message/148081#148081

             

            Once GetSusp identifies and collects the suspect files, post the logs here and we community members can help.
