Byte Bandit virus

A friend's disks are infected with this virus, but he has no hard disk, just a plain A500. Can anyone point me to an ADF file of a bootable disk that has an antidote for this virus?

Byte Bandit is a boot block virus. Just boot with an uninfected Workbench disk and use the Shell command Install to write a new boot block to the infected disks. Of course you need to switch off the infected computer to remove the virus from memory before.

If game disks with custom boot blocks are infected these games are lost. There is no way to restore these boot blocks other than to copy the game from an uninfected version.
