     Important    : The virus will rename the text in the virus to name of the disk name
                    If the name of the floppy disk is 'Workbench1.3',  the virus renames
                    the text in the bootblock to 'WORKBENCH1.3 LOADER!!'
                    
                    That means that there could be a lot of mutations out there
                    
     Text in virus: In the coded virus, you can always read:
                    at $5c to $60  : LOADER!!
                    at $3f0 to $3ff: Mvj/Mvj./KYH]FCI
