Try Eicar.com and download their test file. It is what I use.

This site is for stopping the spread of viruses, not sharing them

You are very special indeed if none of your friends, relatives or classmates have been getting copies of Swen and Sobig in their email.

go to the porn sites, download the xxx dialers, charge a lot of calls to your telephone, with most of them around $15.00/ min.
do this several times each day.
it should be no more than a day or two before you get virus infected files.
and remember,
<b>disable your antivirus software, firewall and Trojan detector</b>.
