How to know if your anti-virus is working?

Saturday, January 23, 2010 Posted by Glenn Von Posadas

Question: How will you know or detect if your anti-virus is working properly?

Answer:
Simply open a Notepad or a Wordpad and paste this code below:

X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

And then save the file as All Files and type (without quotation) "CheckAntivirus.exe"
Note:

If this file got deleted immediately or detected by your antivirus, it means that your antivirus is working properly and updated !!

If this doesn’t happens and you see the saved file in that folder do right click the file and select scan with your installed antivirus and if the scan shows the file then it means your antivirus is working properly but not updated with a new version, as best antivirus softwares detect any virus (at the same second when you save the same in your system)without your effort of going to specified folder and scanning the folder.

If it doesnt shows any kind of threats then you need to change your antivirus software immediately with some good one with the new version
