   This is another typical trojan. It pretends to be a system optimizer,
   which should enable a MMU emulation (pure bullshit).

   Here the FILE_ID.DIZ:

               A Fast Optimizer For 68020-68030 Motorola
               System +7% Faster ! Patch System Routines
               and allow you to create a MMU Simulation!
               Speed For ALL! Optimize your system !
               This Famous Tool has been written in ASM
               by CheckIn of NewIntelligent Tools Prod!

   If you start it, it will open a window with the name:

        'CON:0/0/1280/1280/ SystemScan v0.6 by CheckIn ! in 1995'

   Afterwards some messages appear and the directories "sys:libs","sys:devs",
   "sys:c","sys:s"  and  "sys:L" will be  investigated. The programm pretends
   just to scan the files,  in reality,  all deletable files will be deleted.
   If the programm fails to delete a file, it will give you a "FAILED..." How

   As  "replacement" the  programm writes  a file  called "SYS:FUCK!"  on the
   disc,  which  probably should  make it unpossible to recover the files. If
   this file already exists, the programm will exit with the comment:

   ' System Already Scaned !'

   Other messages, which appear during the scan, are e.g.:

   ' Scan Integrity of the System ! Please Wait ...'

   The code was probably done using a highlevel compiler and not normal asm-
   code (I hate to dissassemble compilercode).

   Removal: Kickstart 1.2 & 1.3 : VT-Schutz v3.17
            Kickstart all others: VirusZ III, and also Xvs.library must be installed
