    I noticed that my computer currently has 41 processes running, and that number seemed a little high to me. I looked through some of the processes and noticed a couple suspicious processes, such as ALCXMNTR. I am pretty sure that my computer is infected.

    I ran Spybot S&E 1.4, Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06r1, and Microsoft AntiSpyware.

    This is my HiJack This log:

    Hi Monkey_O :)

    Actually, the log isn't that bad.
    The only item I'd recommend removing would be:
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [BCNT] C:\PROGRA~1\AWS\WEATHE~1\BCNT.EXE

    Which seems to be related to WeatherBug, which is adware.

    ALCXMNTR.EXE is a dodgy entry which you can disable from Startup.

    It's Realtek AC97 Audio - Event Monitor. It's a "Spyware" type file used surreptitiously monitor one's actions.
    It is not a sinister one, like remote control programs, but it is being used by Realtek to gather data about customers.
