     Comments     : The Extreme 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 and shows
                    the following alert:
