It took me awhile, but I think I've managed to get most of the alfacleaner stuff off the computer, but adware keeps finding and deleting:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_ALFACLEANERSERVICE
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_ALFACLEANER

I tried to delete these from regedit, but it won't let me. I don't know if they show up in the hijackthis log, or if they appear as something else. Alfacleaner seems to stay away for a few mins to an hour while online and appears on the toolbar again.

Thanks in advance for your help. :thumbsup:

Hello akirabomb and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I don't see any signs of AlfaCleaner but there are a couple of cleanup items to take care of. Let's fix those and then run a different scanner.

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {62999427-33FC-4baf-9C9C-BCE6BD127F08} - (no file)
O4 - Startup: install.lnk = D:\APPS\install.exe

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Ok. Now let's try a different scanner and see what it shows us. Download WinPFind.zip and unzip the contents to the C:\ folder.

Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Locate the c:\winpfind\winpfind.exe file and double-click it to run it. Now click the Start Scan button to begin the scan.

When the scan is complete reboot normally and post the WinPFind.txt file (located in the WinPFind folder) back here along with a new HijackThis log and I will review the information when it comes in.

OT
I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.
