    This  is  an  ordinary AmiExpress mailbox virus,  which tries to
    manipulate the user.data from the system.
    It will be tried to open NIL: and AUX: and a little window.
    If all this was ok, a short text will be shown on the window:

            "Please wait ! Loading Data "

    After  his it  will be tried  to open/load  the user.data. If it
    was ok, the following text will be shown:


    After this a simulated GURU will be shown and a new resetroutine
    which is not exitable, will be installed in the coolcapture.

    Text from the simulated GURU:

            '        FATAL HARDWARE ERROR'
            ' Error Nr. 81000 0000A   Task Nr. 00000740'

    The  resetroutine  is  an endless loop,  which  changes , if you
    press the left mousebutton, the background color via direct
    hardware access.

    This virus appeared first in Berlin/West Germany and some
    say that it`s made by the hacker Conman...The packer used
    for this trojan was used several time by this hacker and
    some parts of the code look like its handwriting...

    Removal: Kickstart 1.2 & 1.3 : VT-Schutz v3.17
             Kickstart all others: VirusZ III with Xvs.library installed
