McAfee Stinger

The latest version of McAfee Stinger is a portable, free application designed to remove malware-infected files from your computer. It scans your hard drive on demand and detects viruses, rootkits, Trojans, worms, and other threats. Since there is no setup involved, you can drop the executable file anywhere on your hard drive and launch the tool immediately. By default, the application looks only into system areas where viruses are known to hide, such as with the program files and the Windows directory. However, you can customise the scan and reduce its duration by selecting a drive or directory to check. Any suspicious files are sent to the quarantine, from where you can decide whether to keep or remove the files in question. Log details can be examined in separate files so you can see what actions were performed by the tool.
