McAfee Stinger is (or was) a stand-alone, on-demand AV scanner. Nothing ran in real-time, which is the way I like it. However, a recent change to the Stinger has added a real-time component called "Real Protect" which is described by McAfee's site as follows: If you use Stinger, Real Protect will run in the background, always on, even when Stinger's on-demand scanner itself is not being used. Some folks might like this feature. I don't. QUESTION: Does anyone know if Real Protect is worth its salt?
