Which did you scan with? Spydoctor=Bad Spyware Doctor=Good

If you scanned with Spyware Doctor, go here for instructions to get rid of Alfacleaner:

AnthonyV, I have split your HJT log away from this thread and moved it into the HJT forum.

You can find it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/65465/i-have-alfacleaner/

Now that your log is posted there, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files on your own, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modification you make may complicate the malware removal process and could adversely affect your system.

Please be patient and wait for a response from an HJT Team member. It may take a while to get a response because team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. While waiting, please DO NOT make another reply to your log until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

For anyone else who may have found this topic looking for ways to Remove AlfaCleaner, you can find another tutorial for how to do so at the link I just provided. But if you've already provided a Hijack This log, I do recommend you follow the advice of quietman7 above, and be patient.
