                    fastmem, if no fastmem is available => GURU! The virus
                    changes the Cool-Vector to stay resident in memory.

                    To infect other disks the virus uses the DoIO()-Vector
                    from  the exec.library. Additionally the virus patches
                    the Vec5-Vector => $94(A6). This Patch sets always the
                    CoolCapture + DoIO to the virus value. 

                    The whole virus is crypted depending of $DFF006. After
                    3  infections  the  virus  installs a new patch in the
                    ZERO-PAGE ($68). This patch does the following:

                    1) Tests if you are pressing of a special key.

                    2) If  you  are pressing this special key 10 times the
                       virus causes a reset.
