    Pentagon Virus Slayer 1 & 2a

    Pentagon Virus_Slayer Viruses 1-2a:

    Kickstart 3.0   : yes
    Clones          : @{"Dynamix Viruskiller" link "Dynamix" 0}
    Changed vectors : Kicktag, Kickchecksum, DOIO und Coolcapture

    This bootblock pretend to be a viruskiller for several viruses
    like the old Northstar and Byte Bandit viruses.

    It will copy its code to $7fb00 (direct without allocating it)
    and tests its existence in memory only by checking a longword
    at $7fbXX.

    If a bootblock access was detected, it will search for some
    longwords (very unsecure) and if a virus was found, it will
    be tried to overwrite the bootblock with the own code.

    No tricky stuff, no crapted routine. A "virus" from the old
