 General Comments: 
       May be a variant of the Jerusalem virus.  The string "sUMsDos" has 
       been changed to "sURIV 3.00".  The Suriv 3.00 virus activates on 
       Friday the 13th when an infected program is run or if it is 
       already present in system memory, however files are not deleted due 
       to a bug in the viral code. 
       Other than on Friday the 13th, after the virus is memory resident 
       for 30 seconds, an area of the screen is turned into a "black 
       window" and a time wasting loop is executed with each timer 
       As with the Jerusalem viruses, this virus can also infect 
       overlay, . SYS, and other executable files besides .EXE and .COM 
       files, though it does not infect COMMAND.COM itself.
