Hello all,

I've just been hit by the utterly annoying Voterai virus through an infected flash drive. The virus doesn't exploit automatically; it was just a sad unintented double-click that got my PC infected.

The virus doesn't seem to be harmful. It repeats opening a "Raila Odinga.gif" file repeatedly and thus makes doing any work on the PC almost impossible. I'm running AVG Free Edition & since I'm connetced always it's current & up-to-date.

Here's HJT's log (v. 2.0.2):

Looks like a tough one! :)

It's strange that AVG still isn't able to recognize it although it has been discovered back in June. A friend has assured me Kaspersky & Mcafee both are able to recognize it.


It's just an annoying worm that has as its only function the display of that gif.
==Get CCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/ - and put it in a new folder. You should aim to keep this one for general use. I set the installation checkboxes only to open from the recycle bin. It's neater that way.
Now run CCleaner from the recycle bin rclick menu using its default settings [if you set up CCleaner as i suggested, rclicking the bin icon should give you the Open CCleaner option...]. Select the Cleaner icon, press Run Cleaner.
[For future quick temp file cleaning select the options you wish to use via the Windows and Applications tabs ..]
==Please use IE to do an online scan at panda:- http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan?
-select a link to the scan... free online virus scan...., enter a valid? email and follow through, choosing My Computer for a full system scan.
Post the log it produces here.
