Alphawipe - How to remove?
What is Alphawipe?
Alphawipe is a rogue history cleaner – a fake history cleaning utility, which is more than glad to masquerade as the real deal. Despite the supposed role of "history cleaner", Alphawipe is no different than any other rogue. It infects the system in exactly the same way (by using trojans) and uses the same kind of tactics to prove it’s legitimacy.
AlphaWipe goes by other names too; it can present itself as AlphaWipe Tracks Cleaner 2006 or AlphaWipe Tracks Cleaner 2008.
Once inside and active, Alpha Wipe will start flooding the user with popups and fake system notifications, saying that he has insecure browser history files (or something along those lines), and at some point he will be prompted to buy the "licensed version" in order to dispose of whatever threats need to be removed.
Alphawipe.com, the home of this scam, looks fairly decent, until you notice that there is actually no useful information to be found, most importantly, no contact information. The domain is registered to a person rather than a company, which already speaks for itself and it’s registered in Russia – one of the most notorious countries, when it comes to cyber-crime.
AlphaWipe Tracks Cleaner 2008 is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block Alphawipe.com using your HOSTS file.

Manual Alphawipe removal
Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove Alphawipe, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend using Spyhunter or other tools found on 2-viruses.com.
It is impossible to list all file names and locations of modern parasites. You can identify remaining parasites, other Alphawipe infected files and get help in Alphawipe removal by using Spyhunter scanner.
