virtualapp/didlogical

    Question

  • I found virtualapp/didlogical under Credential Manager in Control Panel. What is this? It shows a Username and password. I don't recall using such. How did this get into my computer?

  • Hi Thess Williams,

     

    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

     

    Hope it can help you!

  • I too have found didlogical almost each day in my vault. It has been put there by a malicious user located in India. Each day I remove it from my computer and in no time it is back again with all sorts of other credentials I did not add to my Credential Vault.  How can I stop this malicious use of my computer by someone who is trying to download mt emails and malicious misuse my computer?
