     Comments     : The Paradox 1 virus  is a very harmless one.  If you
                    are booting  with an infected  disk the virus copies
                    itself  to  address  $7F800  and  changes  the KICK-
                    Vectors to stay  resident in memory.  After the next
                    reset  the virus patches the DoIO()-Vector to infect
                    other disks.  After  the  1st  infection  the  virus
                    additionally patches the ZERO-Page ($6C). This patch
                    increases a value by 1.  If this value reaches 30000
                    the  virus executes  an endless-routine  by  showing
                    some collors on the screen.
