    I am going to tell how to make a fake virus , it won`t do anything harmful , it is just supposed to print a message into console .
    1) create a txt file
    2) paste that text into file : X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*
    3) save file as .exe

    Finally your Anti-Malware should catch that , mine just did , if it didn`t then i`d recommend change your anti-malware software with one stronger like Avast.
