    something I found on another board:

    From Kevin.

    So ... as part of this little secret, a revelation to screw with if you want to - it's been part of BOClean since version 2.01 and remained undocumented because *I* always believed it was USELESS ... behold!

    Right click the BOClean traybar icon (despite rumors by our competitors that a right click buys you nothing) ... when the button bar appears (you DID grab it by the top at some point and moved it where you wanted, no? Heh) let it just SIT there.

    Now ... open a file explorer window, pick a suspicious file (or a known malware, OR "test trojan" like Steve Gibson's LEAKTEST - that one's SAFE to play with) and DRAG it carefully and DROP it on the menu ... preferably near the top, but depending on your video driver, just about anywhere there will do - if you miss, nothing will happen. If you "hit the sweet spot" (it's big) then a window will appear as it SCANS the file!

    Chances are though, aside from things that ain't been played with or are "mass-distributed", nothing will happen. If it DOES match a "file pattern signature" then the alarm bells will go off! And if it's "access denied, in use" then a reboot will get rid of it if it happens to be running. The ORIGINAL FREE BOClean worked this way.

    Having posted that, it is VERY quick. Blink and you have missed it. (the window)

    That is so fast when I use Leak Test that you are right, if I blink, I miss the window. Is there something safe to test that will produce bells and whistles?

    You can try the eicar.com test file. Just make sure to disable your AV before downloading it.
