 General Comments: 
       The Infect.736 virus was received in February, 1995.  Its origin or 
       point of isolation is unknown.  Infect.736 is a memory resident 
       infector of .COM files, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When the first Infect.736 infected program is executed, this virus 
       will install itself memory resident as a low system memory TSR of 
       1,056 bytes.  Interrupts 1C, 21, and 2E will be hooked by the virus 
       in memory. 
       Once the Infect.736 virus is memory resident, it will infect .COM 
       files when they are executed.  Infected files will have a file length 
       increase of 736 bytes with the virus being located at the beginning 
       of the file.  The program's date and time in the DOS disk directory 
       listing will not be altered.  The following text string is visible 
       within the viral code: 
               " COM"
