Make Your Own Fake Virus with Notepad

Open Notepad and Copy-Paste foll. line:


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

Then save it as a txt file. If your AntiVirus is not sleeping/ not configured to scan txt files you should get a Virus warning. 
If you can save it and later open it again, perhaps your AntiVirus is sleeping. Then save this file as an 'exe'. If even now your AntiVirus is sleeping, you need to boot out the Lazy Tom of your AntiVirus.
