  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for the post!

     

    The Generic credentials are different from Windows credentials where you can manage all windows credentials, since they are authenticated by programs that manage security on their own rather than sending it to the Operating System.

     

    If you are not sure of using any application program or website by that name , please delete the virtualapp user in Generic credentials. For example, you can remove all of the Microsoft Live apps like writer, mail and so on. If this user doesn’t bother you, you can still keep it.

     

    For the new feature Credential Manager, you can see more information in http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/Windows7/What-is-Credential-Manager

     

    Regards,

    Miya
