Print Screen Boot

GO TO: Summary | Removal


Category: Malware

Type: Virus

Aliases: Print Screen Boot


This is a very small virus that stores the original boot sector in the last sector of the root directory, just like the Stoned and Korea viruses. It relocates the original INT 13 to INT 6D, which will cause problems with many VGA cards. As the name indicates, the virus will occasionally perform a PrintScreen operation.
