     Comments     : The  Excrement-Virus  uses  the  coolcapture-vector to
                    stay  resident  in memory.  Further the virus uses the
                    DoIO()-Vector  from  the  EXEC.library to infect other
                    disks.  The  virus  copies  itself  always to the same
                    memory-adress ($7f400).

                    Depending of infections the POWER-LED begins to flash.
