check antivirus capability

10:47 Posted by ItRocks , No comments

Now, you can check if your antivirus really works. Type the following in notepad:

Save the file as virus-test.txt

Scan the file. If your antivirus detects this file as a virus and tries to remove it, then you can be sure your antivirus is a good one. This is a much easier way, than actually downloading a virus to test it. This sample virus code is perfectly harmless and allows you to test your antivirus. A good antivirus like MS Security Essentials will detect this test virus even before you scan it.
That's all the tricks I'm sharing, at least for now. All the tricks above are perfectly safe and will not harm your computer in any way. There are many destructive notepad tricks as well, like making a real virus which kills the Operating System, but personally, I believe that is only meant for developers who want to make their OS security better. Use these tricks in your best behavior :)
