What is Virtualapp/Didlogical?

Did you find the entry Virtualapp/Didlogical in your Windows 7 credential manager and now you’re wondering what it is? If so, don’t worry, here are some more details.

Virtualapp Didlogical

So, who creates the entry Virtualapp/Didlogical?

Virtualapp/Didlogical is a credential that is stored when you use any of the Windows Live products, this can include Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Sign-In Assisstant, Windows XP Mode and other Microsoft services.

Is it safe to delete Virtualapp/Didlogical?

In general it is safe to delete it – however, it’s pretty useless to remove it IF you are using Windows Live or any other Microsoft services on a regular basis. I would therefore not recommend to delete it – after reading through this post AND the comments you will have a better idea what this is and how it affects you, so you can feel a little safer now

You may delete the entry from the Credential Manager.
1. Step Open Control Panel, click on Credential Manager
2. Step Click on the dropdown icon of the entry Virtualapp/Didlogical
3. Step Click on Remove from Vault

Remove Virtualapp Didlogical Credentials

Help! It automatically recreates itself!

Yes, if you continue to use the Microsoft Windows Live products, you will always have this entry. The only solutions is to uninstall Windows Live products and look for alternatives, but since this is not a security problem there is absolutely no reason to do that.

Is there any credential that you don’t know? Post the name below and we will inspect it. Maybe we can compile a list of false positives.

Pro Tip: If you try to find a Windows share on Ubuntu you should make sure to delete all credentials in order to avoid any problems with cached credentials.

    VIRTUALAPP/DIDLOGICAL This file or program has been found in credential manager. It appears to be connected with the user name and is shown as an administrator. I am being restricted from using many programs because I am being asked for a password which I do not have. Until this appeared on my pc I was the administrator but I am shown as a standard user. Is this some sort of virus and how can I get rid of it?

    This is a BIG problem. You guidence did help me to correct this, but it never should have happened in the first place. I was in the middle of a fresh load and updates of Win7 and Office 2010. After the Win Live items were installed, (I only chose the IM and the Photo/Movie maker), this problem cropped up and I could no longer do updates, install programs or much of anything, it took over as the main admin of the PC. It wouldn’t even let me install Win 7 SP 1.

    Microsoft …. FIX THIS!

    thank you for reassuring me that it is no threat!! I thought it might be a virus or keylogger but if it is related to Windows Live Products then I am fine with keeping it :)

    Virtualapp/didlogical is part of your microsoft computer systems live assistance help software, it allows microsoft personel to remote control and view your computer activity. however if they are doing it live, you will know by if your computer is freezing while making movements or typeing actions that your not commaning with you mouse and keyboard. the scary thing about this is that microsoft outsources its employees for live assisitance to Mumbai, India these people actual also send phone calls to your cellular phone, and when you attemp to call them back, an operator responds with this number does not exist. also the area codes also seem to alter from US area code to US area code in order to confuse law enforcement. this is a prime example of internet security issues evolving from private corporations being cheap on labor cost by sending high risk information to 2nd and 2rd world economic powers where opportunist run wild on the consistant ideology of geeting rich off robbing the assumed rich every american illusion. to confirm these alligations you can call microsoft assistance number located on their own website and request for live assistance on fixing a a fake computer problem using remote assistance and in doing this i quarantee that they will have you enter that strange user name and password, at the sound of some guy in India.just say to him “Hare Krishna” and see if he respons back “Hare Hare” thus confirming you personal security doomed.

    I recently changed my default browser to google. Now that I’ve learned what this entry is I’d like to know if changing/removing google browser & deleting the entry in credentials manager will eliminate the logging into my personal, and I thought, private pc. Have the “Bill of Rights” been totally abandoned from our government?

    I think that I have finally figured this out, and it really is kind of scary. Basically, if you are using a commercial internet connection at a restaurant or hotel or another location where you are basically using someone else’s internet connection, this application will basically monitor your activity and record it for later access if you happen to break the law or say something that someone else does not like, VERY unsettling!

    Saying it’s “no threat” isn’t sufficient. There should have been no credential inserted without my express permission, Not unstated, or “presumed”, but by a popup that specifically states that MS will be inserting this credential into my system, and subsequently asking my permission to do so.

    Period. No ifs, ands, buts, or other excuses, nor for that matter, some condescending asshat attitude from MS. They’ve been quite silent about this and it takes an enormous amount of effort to even find posts such as the one to which I am responding.

    Fact is, the only company that resembles the name in question is a company run out of China, which uses a network scheme that makes it appear to come from Germnay, which smells of espionage (corporate or otherwise). IFF it really is an internal MS identifier, it should have been selected accordingly.

    Been a long time customer of MS (nearly 30 years and close to 150 computers installed with MS operating systems as a direct result of my choices, but this has me questioning my loyalty. Their paradigm is flawed and patently offensive.

    So after reading all the post’s I am assuming that it is safe to delete this.
    Don’t quite get how they can post a user name and a password on your computer. Anyway I am going to delete it and see what happens. Thanks to everyone for sharing their experience

    Alas, the author provides absolutely no evidence that this is nothing to worry about, nor does he indicate how it was determined that it porvides any real functionality withing Windows Live, even if WL is the source of the infection.

    “Generic credentials” provide open, unhindered access into all aspects of your system — data, applications, logs, everything.

    Joe, thanks for the feedback but most only want to know the source of infection so they can get rid of the problem. I also nowhere state this entry is harmless, I only state that you will not get rid of the problem if you continue to use Windows Live products

    Would “Edit” help? If I change the password, will they just ignore and set up a new V/D entry?
