How To Know If My Antivirus Is Working

Do you know your antivirus may become inactive and useless even though they are installed? Yes. This is to test whether your Antivirus is working or not. Just follow my simple steps:

  • open notepad and save the following entry below as an exe file. 
X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

Save this as "anynam.exe". When trying to save it, your antivirus should popup to give you a warning message. This test is a false positive, this is not harmful to your machine. This is only to test if your antivirus works great. If your antivirus doesn't warn you at all, kindly switch to a better antivirus.
