    Default How to Check Your AntiVirus Software Working Properly Or Not

    his article is best in checking out whether your antivirus software is running at its best or not. It was not known to many that how to check the antivirus software they are using is working properly or not. Please read the article for the details.

    1Click Start --> Open Notepad -->

    Step2Copy the code exactly in the notepad :

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

    Step3Now Save it with the name fakevirus.exe in any of your folder/drives.

    Step4If this file got deleted immediately...then it means that your antivirus is working properly and updated !!

    Step5If this doesnt 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.

    Step6If it doesnt shows any kind of threats then you need to change your antivirus software immediately with some good one with the new version.

    Modern anti-virus software typically uses a variety of methods to identify the virus. Most antivirus software uses signatures to identify blocks of code found in a virus. Wild card accounts may appear in the signature mutation; be modified to avoid detection. Heuristic can add signatures.
