        This file claims to be a speedup system for loading files. In
        the text it`s said that the LOADSEG und NEWLOADSEG vectors will

        Both installers activate the same virus. Nothing has changed !
        After the file "dh0:c/setpatch" was found, the virus will be

        Differences between the first and the second installer: The
        second installer crashes at WB start, due to missing startup.

        Both installers try to install the Fileghost 1 virus !
