How does one uninstall Windows Vault and Credentials Manager? Why do I need to have this Windows Vault/Credentials Manager if I do not store my credentials on my local machine? This should be an optional tool!!!! Specially this Generic Credentials non-sense.
I went to the KB949104 and it reported that my windows is up to date. Now I am getting this fictitious certificate VirtualApp/Didlogical. I keep deleting it and it keeps re-appearing.
I do not have automatic windows updates because I fear creating a backdoor from my limited user account to my admin account. I do not see why there should be a difference in the security controls of windows update. Furthermore, if you are telling me that it is possible for an intruder to install a fake update????
I just as soon like to disable this Windows Vault all together but do not seem to find instructions on how to do it. I do not wish to save/store Any Credentials on my computer. I also do not use Messenger. How do I get rid of it?
When I search for KB949104 a Fix IT dialogue box automatically pops up and what is worse it may or may not fix your troubles. How do I know that this is not a fake Fix It and I am un-intentionally consenting to allow an intruder to enter my local machine. There has got to be a better less stressful more secure way.
Shouldn't updates fix this issue while scanning for updates manually? How and when did Microsoft fix this issue.
How do I get rid of generic credentials manager all together and block any and all generic credentials form re-creating itself?

Regarding how to remove VirtualApp/Didlogical, please refer to [How To] Remove Virtualapp/didlogical Credentials In Windows 7.
Regarding Windows Credentials, please refer to the following:
If you would like to disable Windows Credential Manager, please try the following and see how it works:
1. Open “gpedit.msc”
2. Go to: Local Computer Policy | Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options
3. Find the policy: Netowrk access: Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication
4. Change the Local Security Settings to “Enable”
Hope this helps.

Thank you Jeremy,
I believe that I have this security setting already enabled. However, I will double check.
