Recently, I accidently downloaded a program on my computer which is causing problems with the internet and prompting me to download a spyware removal program from this internet website: http://www.virusprotectpro.com/?aff=1012
I have tried removing the file from my directory manually, but I cannot delete the file because it says its encoded and/ or being used by another person. I also tried running Ad-Aware, Spy Bot, and one of the programs you recommended- Housevisit? It didn't detect the program and I am at a loss? I have some type of trojan or malware- I think. Please help.

Here are two ways to remove vpp, one is to follow the Instructions here. The other is to download Rogue Remover Free from malwarebytes.org.
You should also run Superantispyware
