There is a Simple 1 line Code which Antivirus must Stop you to proceed further, if not then its clear that your antivirus is a waste and is not working properly. Just follow the below simple steps to know if your antivirus is good or good for nothing.

Step 1: Open notepad and Copy the Below Code in it

Code:
X50!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*


Step 2: Once you have Copied the Code in your notepad, its time to Save it, so click on File and Save, Name it Trickslove.com or any other name you want to give it.

Step 3: Once you have saved the file, Double click on it to open. Your Antivirus will Warn you and Stop you which means its working fine but if you antivirus doesn't Stops you and warn you, then its time to accept that your antivirus is Good for nothing.

Step 4: If your antivirus warns you when you open the notepad file then You can Continue Using it Else Uninstall it and Change your Antivirus.

This Was One Method to Test it out and which is Called as EICAR Test. But, by far, the best way to find out whether an antivirus program is fake or not would be to look up its name on a search engine followed by the word “fake.” If the results show you removal instructions and sites that confirm that it’s fake, you have the answer to your question.
