How to check that anti-virus software is working

I have a friend who is unsure if his AV software is working properly. I seem to remember a short time ago - within the last two years - a website address from which it was possible to download a very small file which could be used to simulate a virus attack. I think it was from a European organisation - perhaps based in Switzerland.

The same file was also mentioned in a PC magazine - possibly PCA.

Thanks

Dave
