You need to put it in the \incoming folder:

The eicar test file is a file that is used to test whether an av is working correctly.

Hi Stealthyboss,

Now I know that ALWIL are probaly working towards trying to fix this, but i have also noticed a thread here, in which someone has found a solution.
Apparently, downloading and installing the newest driver for the fingerprint software is it.

I imagine you will have to look for your specific model and get the driver.

Hope this helps :)
