Program too big to fit in memory

The virus creates "ABBA+ƒnn" files with HIDDEN and READONLY attributes on the current drive, where "nn" is the number of files to be infected on this drive (with each infection the virus renames the infected file with an increased "nn" number). Depending on this number the virus manifests itself with a video effect if there is a Hercules video card installed.
