To check your setup, introduce a copy of EICAR.James said:MacAfee is not a heap of junk but my new computer (two years ago) came
with a free 90 day trial of MacAfee. After 15 days I began to get
messages encouraging me to buy the real thing. These reached a daily
frequency and I got so irked that I decided to buy Norton. I have not
detected anything that Norton seems to have missed.
Convenient link at the bottom of the page.
I placed a file like that, on one of my drives, ran a scanner
over it, and it got picked up.
And I've had a couple scanning tools, where I wondered whether
they could actually pick *anything* up (TrendMicro web scanning thingy???).
Too bad I didn't learn about that test file, sooner.
And here's a scan of the file. Two AVs don't make any notation! Quality.
The file downloads as eicar.com.txt, so you can read it or open in Notepad.
If you change the extension, make it eicar.com, then you can "run it".
