     Comments     : This virus is a very complex one. The only thing I can
                    say  about  this  virus  is  that  it copies itself to
                    to $7F7E0 (? not sure) and to patch the DoIO() vector.
                    Furthermore  the  CoolCapture is used to stay resident
                    in memory. Additionally $20 will be patched.

                    Depending  of  infections  the  virus  gives  out  any
                    message (?) I  Don`t  know  exactly because  my virus-
                    version  is damage a little bit). 

     Note         : Some Viruskillers say  that this  Virus is the 'Julie'
                    or  'Tick'.  Don`t be  confused. The 'Julie' or 'Tick'
                    Virus is the  Virus Predator  and as you can see  from
                    the above message, which the virus contains.
