 General Comments: 
       The Quicky or Quicksilver virus was received in July, 1995.  Its 
       origin or point of isolation is unknown.  Quicky is a memory 
       resident infector of .EXE files.  It does not infect files located 
       on the A: drive. 
       When the first Quicky infected program is executed, this virus will 
       become memory resident as a low system memory TSR of 1,664 bytes. 
       Interrupts 13 and 21 will be hooked by the virus in memory. 
       Once the Quicky virus is memory resident, it will infect .EXE files 
       on the system hard disk when they are executed.  Infected files 
       will have a file length increase of 1,376 bytes with the virus 
       being located at the end of the file.  The program's date and time 
       in the DOS disk directory listing will not be altered.  The 
       following text strings are encrypted within the viral code: 
       This virus may interfer with the functionality of some versions of 
       Turbo Anti-Virus.
