 General Comments: 
       Some anti-viral programs may detect boot sector and master boot 
       sector (partition table) viruses using techniques which look for 
       similar functions or characteristics within the virus code.  These 
       programs may identify such viruses as "generic boot" viruses. 
       Boot viruses which may be identified by some programs as Generic 
       Boot, and are identified in separate entries in VSUM are: 
                Fish Boot    Guillon    Keydrop    Max      Queens 
                Tony Boot    Windmill 
       If you have a virus detected as a generic boot virus which does 
       not match one of the above, please submit a copy of it on diskette 
       to the author of VSUM for inclusion in the next release.
