     Comments     : The Prima Vera 8 virus uses the kick vectors to
                    stay resident in memory.  To infect other disks
                    the  virus  uses  the  DoIO()-Vector  from  the 
                    exec.library.  When  a  special value reaches 0
                    the virus start a quickformat routine.
