How to test your anti-virus

We all will have an anti-virus or two installed in our system for sure. Once I want to test the anti-virus I have installed. I cant risk my system by directly installing an anti-virus. Then i came across this method of creating a fake virus. The procedure to test the anti-virus is as follows:

  • Open notepad.
  • Copy the below code in the file.

  • Then save it with the name fakevirus.exe

    If this file got deleted immediately that means your antivirus is working and updated. Try it.
