Battery? Altenator? or something else?

Where i live it is really, really cold weather right now. I didnt drive my car for a few days and now it wont start. i had to get a couple boosts already this winter so i thought the problem was my battery. My car would not turn over or boost or anything and so i decided to replace the battery. Now that there is a new battery my car still wont start! i thought maybe it needed some gasline antifreeze but even after i put some of that in it still wont start. It turns over and sounds like it will almost start. Could it be my altenator that is bad or could the car sitting in the really cold weather for about a week be why it wont start. What are signs of a bad altenator

I had a similar problem with my truck and it was froze up from sittin in the cold there was some water in the gas. I put some methyl hydrate in the gas tank and after 20 minutes tried it again and it started. Try some methyl or gas line antifreeze maybe or plug it in for a while? good luck
