The question I have is pretty much the antithesis of this forum...

I'm looking to infect myself with any form of malware for the purpose of creating realtime documentation on the removal process.

The PC I'm on now has been imaged prior so I'm not too concerned with the results.

Can anyone link me to some known foistware or any other malware?

Any help would be appreciated.

There must be some torrent out there that's surely infected with something...

We will not post active links to malware sites in our forums. You can perform a Google search on how to infect your computer on purpose to find the information you are seeking.

I would reccomend studying malware a little more first, once you understand it better it will be obvious where to find it and
how to fight it.

Most people who do this, do it on a standalone machine and even then they do it virtually thru a sandbox or use VM, some malware can even evade that, a few infect the masterbootrecord and one will infect your router.

Many more common ones will target any shared drives

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
