Test Your Antivirus

Copy and paste the code below into notepad


The text should be in one line with no spaces.

Save file as "" including quotation-marks (make sure it is saved in extention . com)

A few seconds after saving this file, your Anti-Virus should come with the message that this file is infected with virus asking permission for its deletion/clean.

This file is secure and its not going to infect your computer in whatever way. It is a standard text developed by the European Institute for Computer Anti-virus Research (EICAR). Every Anti-Virus is programed to load this file as a virus.

If your Anti-Virus will not detect this file as a virus, a program will appear as DOS window with this text EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE.

If this happens then you should probably find some other Anti-Virus up to date as you are not fully protected.
