VERY GOOD NEWS :
Georg Wittmann is back, and will make updates of VirusZ III and Xvs.library. So when Georg Wittmann makes a new update of the Xvs.library, then we will remove the bootblock virus and virus clones that Virus Help Team has added, because with the use of the newest Xvs.library it will now detect these viruses and clones, and we will leave the rest of the brain file as it is, so it will report names of harmless bootblocks.
