killer. It is called the DuBois virus and when it hits you, it
hits right in your pocketbook. when an infected program is
executed, every individual RAM IC chip in your computer will
explode! And if you don't get the virus removed from your hard
drive before you power up the machine again after replacing all
RAM, POOF!! It blows all the RAM again!!!!! KILLER!!!
