How To Uninstall McAfee Labs Stinger

There are two procedures to uninstall mcafee antivirus: manual (not recommended) and automatic (simple).

Delete McAfee Labs Stinger manually

First of all, this tool is marketed by McAfee Labs, with the official website http://www.mcafee.com/us/downloads/free-tools/stinger.aspx. The executable is approximately 11.44 Mb for the McAfee Labs Stinger version 12.1.0.1423 and it is an antivirus.

Open the control panel.

  • If you have Windows 8, go with the mouse to the lower right corner of the monitor, scroll up and click Settings and then Change PC settings.
  • With Windows 7 or earlier, go to Start and then Control Panel.
  • For Windows 10, right-click on Start and then Control Panel.

Go to Uninstall a program and you will see a list of programs to select from. Right click on McAfee Labs Stinger and continue with uninstall.

At this point, you just have to continue with the simplified procedure and in a few minutes you will have eliminated McAfee Labs Stinger.

But you're not done! To completely delete, open the registry editor:

  • For Windows 8, press WIN + R and type regedit.exe
  • If you have Windows 7 or older, move to Start, Run and enter regedit
  • For Windows 10, go to the start box and enter regedit

At this point, click Edit> Find> McAfee Labs Stinger and delete all the matches obtained, being careful not to make mistakes.

It is clear that this guide is often not enough, given that some software saves files in places that the basic Microsoft Windows system does not include in the deletion.
The sets of files progressively take away several Giga and your HDD will fill up quickly without being able to free it.

If you do not want to suffer this, you must delete all the data installed by McAfee Labs Stinger, including those present in the registry.

By practicing these actions personally you could delete indispensable files or registry data which, if not present, will cause Windows to crash and very serious unwanted problems.
