Alpha Antivirus removal

Post by weekendwranglers on Tue Nov 10, 2009 7:38 pm

I'm new at this stuff so need info on baby steps only.
Have alpha antivirus sending me notices (boxes) on all
sites I try to visit.
Went to Control panel and it shows alpha but that it is
inactive.
When I try to delete the "box" the next screen blows up
the background images and then windows comes on
with the blue screen, white lettering that says turn
computer off now.
How do I get rid of this pesky company? I cannot
answer e-mails or do research without the "box"
coming up.
Appreciate any help.

Please download the current version of HijackThis from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double click and run the installer.
  • It will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\hijackthis.exe
  • After installing, you should get the user agreement, press accept and Hijack This will run.
  • Select Do a system scan and save a log file. This will open a notepad file of everything Hijack This found, copy and paste it back here.

Hello Belahzur....
I notice the icons from Alpha Antivirus are gone
from the bottom of my screen. Is that good?

Hopefully, can you run Hijack This though? I'd like to see the log. Smile

In Notepad? you can use the "Edit" menu, once you highlight everything, under Edit menu is "Copy".
Then right click here, select "Paste"

Please download and run this tool.

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


Post the contents of the MBAM Log.
