Code: Select all

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


Open Notepad
Copy above word and paste it to notepad
Save it (can put whatever name you like)

Close the Notepad.
Open the file which just you save.

If your antivirus will kill it right away Then congratulation.
your antivirus program is present and protect your computer.

If not.... please install antivirus asap. :lol: :lol: :lol:
