Windows 7: Testing AntiVirus and AntiMalware programs?

I wanted the same thing David when I was testing Mbam beta.

I cam across http://www.testmypcsecurity.com/secu...car_suite.html which seems similar to what CallEnder posted.

I had some difficulty downloading for a number of reasons. The download link itself might be broken or intermittent... and then there's the issue with downloading malware tests. Avast and or Defender or SmartFilter blocked the download - haha - that itself was a good test.

I had the suite on my system for a while but never executed the tests inside the zip. Again, my protection blocked me from opening the zip and I said - screw it. Note that while the zip existing only a few scanners (sorry, I forget which ones) flagged it or the flagged the files inside (I scan archives with every scanner being used/tested)

Good luck, post what you find as useful (and safe to use)

There is a website called WICAR.org | Malicious Website for Testing Internet Filters, Anti-malware, Proxies etc. to test browser anti malware detection.

I'm changing my antivirus program from McAfee to Avira. Is it better to uninstall McAfee before downloading Avira, or does it make any difference if I install Avira while McAfee has not as yet been uninstalled. The reason for this: I don't want two antivirus programs running at the same time.

Every single anti-virus program I've tried (AVG, Symantic, and Avira) seems to break Microsoft Office. After I install the program, when I try to run any office program at all, the program will open and just hang and come up "Not Responding." I know I probably should have virus protection, but...
