     Comments     : The Lamer Exterminator 7 Virus is a very dangerous
                    virus.  It patches  the BeginIO()-Vector  from the
                    trackdisk.device to infect other  disks. The virus
                    uses the KICK-Vectors to stay resident. 
                    Sometimes  the  virus  fills up a calculated block 
                    ($DFF006) with the word "LAMER".
                    No salvage possible.
                    The whole Bootblock is crypted ($DFF007).
                    Memory-Address over StructMemList and AllocABS.
