to start off i knew I had a virus al long time ago and never new where it was. did all the scans the forum topic said but I still have it. well today I was removing some of my programs when i saw this (which I think is the virus) program i never saw which is called "VSAdd-in for Internet Explorer". when I tried to get rid of it, it did not work. so I tried a few more times. Then I realized it must be the virus that has been bugging me for a long time. this "virus" made pop-ups from Internet Explorer (I.E.), and if I did not delete them in 40 secs (including it's process) , it would mess up my computer and have to restart it. it will only activate when i am on I.E. which i dont use and Firefox which i do use. If someone knows how to get rid of this please tell me.

You should be able to just go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove and uninstall VSAdd-in. See "How To Remove An Installed Program From Your Computer" if your not sure how to do this.

When done, delete this folder if still present:
C:\Program Files\VSAdd-in <-

However, I have seen this with other types of malware infections on a system so let me know if your still having problems.
