These programs simulate the visual effects of some of the PC viruses.

The complete set of programs currently consists of:

CASC-SIM.COM Cascade virus simulation (standard activation)
CSC-SIMX.COM Cascade virus simulation (display only)
DENZ-SIM COM Denzuk virus simulation - single shot display
FUMN-SIM.COM Fu Manchu virus simulation
FUM-SIMD COM Fu Manchu virus simulation - single shot display
FUM-SIMX.COM Fu Manchu virus simulation (censored)
ITAL-SIM.COM Italian virus simulation (standard activation)
ITL-SIMX.COM Italian virus simulation (display only)
JERU-SIM.COM Jerusalem virus simulation

Many of these programs are TSRs, and in all such cases the program can be
removed from memory by the <-> key combination.

Some of them have a programmable builtin delay, and these may be called with
a numeric parameter between 1 and 30 inclusive. This number represents the
delay in minutes before displaying the simulation effect. If the program is
called without a parameter a delay of one minute is assumed, except for the
program ITL-SIMX where no parameter means no delay.

In many cases the simulation can be switched off, and the delay reset,
by the <+> key combination. The exception is the program ITL-SIMX when
called without a parameter: in this case the <+> key combination toggles
the display.

Please note that the <+> & <-> refer to the grey keys right of the numeric
key pad.

CASC-SIM.COM
Cascade virus simulation (standard activation)

This program simulates the display of the Cascade virus. Characters will
fall down the screen until they encounter another character or a change in
the background or foreground colours.

The area of display affected will initially be one column. This will build
up with successive displays until the full screen is affected.

The delay before the first display will be random with a maximum of five
minutes, and that between displays will be random with a maximum of one
minute.

CSC-SIMX.COM [n]
Cascade virus simulation (display only)

This program simulates the display of the Cascade virus, but with a controlled
delay. Characters will fall down the screen until they encounter another
character or a change in the background or foreground colours.

The area of display affected will be the full-screen.

The delay before the first display, and that between displays, will be equal
to the entered parameter in minutes, or one minute if no parameter is given.

DENZ-SIM.COM
Denzuk virus simulation - single shot display

This program is not a TSR, nor does it accept any parameters. It duplicates
the visual display produced by the virus when Ctrl-Alt-Del is intercepted.

FUMN-SIM.COM
Fu Manchu virus simulation

The virus intercepts the keyboard I/O interrupt, and certain words cause the
addition of comments. These comments go into the keyboard buffer, not just on
the screen.

The trigger words include "Thatcher", "Botha", "Reagan", "Waldheim" and
"Fu Manchu". In each case the trigger is the word (or words) followed by a
space. The other trigger words are the two more explicit four-letter words
(without a space). Be warned that this simulation, like the virus, uses
explicit language.

Ctrl-Alt-Del is intercepted and produces a message before the machine reboots.

There is no reset with this program.

FUM-SIMD.COM
Fu Manchu virus simulation - single shot display

This program is not a TSR, nor does it accept any parameters. It displays the
message produced by the virus when Ctrl-Alt-Del is intercepted.

FUM-SIMX.COM
Fu Manchu virus simulation (censored)

This program is exactly as described for FUMN-SIM.COM, except that the two
four-letter words have been censored to "c***" and "f***", both on input and
output.

This version is intended for public demonstrations where it is felt that the
full-blooded version would be inappropriate.

ITAL-SIM.COM
Italian virus simulation (standard activation)

This program simulates the display of the Italian virus, which is a single
character "bouncing ball".

The display will only activate under the same condition as the real virus,
which is a disk access during a one second time "window" occurring every half
hour. "Reset" will switch off the display again until the next such
activation.

ITL-SIMX.COM [n]
Italian virus simulation (display only)

This program simulates the display of the Italian virus, which is a single
character "bouncing ball".

If called with a parameter there will be a delay before the display is
activated equal to the parameter in minutes. Reset will switch off the
display until this same delay has elapsed again.

If called with a parameter the display will appear immediately, and reset will
switch the display on and off

JERU-SIM.COM [n]
Jerusalem virus simulation

This program simulates Jerusalem virus. After the initial delay a portion
of the screen (from row 5 column 5 to row 16 column 16) will be scrolled up
two lines, creating a small black gap in the display. At this time a time
wasting loop will be activated, and the processor will appear to be slowed
down. Reset will switch off the slow-down effect, and re-institute the delay.

If called with a parameter there will be a delay before the display is
activated equal to the parameter in minutes. If called without a parameter,
the delay will be one minute. Reset will switch off the display until this
same delay has elapsed again.
