Well, this activity is one of the most usual way to defend if your antivirus is employed. Whether you are using avast, avg, Norton etc (btw I'm using AVG and this truly entirety).

Lawless your notepad, and then kinfolk the file as [email protected][4PZX54(P^)7CC)7 $EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*, after denotive try to forbid this anywhere in your PC.

In a break of seconds, your antivirus should discover this one as a virus.

I reckon this one is fair a create enter that acts suchlike a virus but it's not really a virus, did this cozen also with my pc and it worked with my avast.

It seems that you are still not that sure if your antivirus already works or not. If you know that you have successfully installed the antivirus on your computer then it should already be protecting your system each time your machine boots. This is how an antivirus works. It starts loading, scanning, and checking the system the moment your operating system starts booting.

To let users know how effective their antivirus products are, they have a free version of the software that will let you test its effectiveness in detecting and maintaining the security of your system. But these free versions, of course, have limitations and the full features are only available in the registered version for those who are willing to pay. Here are some of the free antivirus software that you can use:
