How to Check Your Anti-Virus Software Working Properly Or Not
« on: September 01, 2009, 01:01:24 PM »
This article is best in checking out whether your anti-virus software is running at its best or not. It was not known to many that how to check the anti-virus software they are using is working properly or not. Please read the article for the details.

1:-Click Start --> Open Notepad -->

2:-Copy the code exactly in the notepad :

Code: [Select]
X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*
3:-Now Save it with the name fakevirus.exe in any of your folder/drives.

4:-If this file got deleted immediately...then it means that your anti-virus is working properly and updated !!

5:-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 anti-virus and if the scan shows the file then it means your anti-virus is working properly but not updated with a new version, as best anti-virus 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.

6:-If it doesn't shows any kind of threats then you need to change your anti-virus software immediately with some good one with the new version.

Anti0virus programs are one of the most important defenses against malware attacks. Computers can be disabled by viruses and spyware within days and they can also slow performance and steal private information. Some viruses are also programmed to disable anti-virus protection to prevent themselves from being detected. If you're not running regular scans on your system, it can take time to realize the program has been disabled. Testing your virus protection can be done in minutes.Open your anti-virus software. It is a good sign if it opens normally since viruses will sometimes prevent it from reading its own files, resulting in error messages on startup.

Thanks
