Variant:Gamlet.A

When an infected document is closed, the virus shows the following message in the Word's status bar:

  TO BE OR NOT TO BE ?...

Then it infects the global template and every document that is closed thereafter.

It also disables the Word's built-in macro virus protection when Word is restarted and hooks "Tools/Macros/Macro" dialog rendering it unusable.
