As you should know by now, we do not give, send or direct people to malware here.

Have you not tried a search using google?

However I doubt that there is much in the way of harmless test malware (no eicar test virus type).

I hope you have your back-up strategy in place before contemplating this, a minimum before trying anything like this would be a HDD image (IMHO).

Since this is an addition to Ad-Aware by lavasoft you can be reasonably sure it should be at least as good as ad-aware, but nothing is 100%.

I know it's not really a test but you can try to install some software and see that Ad-watch will detect the startup item (if any).  8)

Before the new definition file yesterday i was using definitions from16.02.2005 and no spyware was found.Today i updated the definitions and 6 were found.Ad-watch was running.
But when i run icq it popups and says that icq wants to change regystrys.Looks like i have to make a rule ::)

Did you mean Install ICQ???
Registry entries are entered during the installation of most programs but, not usually when running a program.

No,not when installing ICQ.When running it.And when i boot and the system starts ICQ wanted to delete Some registry.But I've make rule.But i don't see the use of ad-watch.The last time when i was running win 98 it didn't detect anything and my PC was full with spyware(i deleted The spyware every day but ad-watch didn't told me anything)Today i deleted 6 registry   that ad-watch didn't detect.Is this OK or its not working properly
