Hi

I posted previously saying I'd had a problem with spyware on my PC.

Anyway, I did a full clean reinstall and thanks to people on this forum, helped stop future issues with malware etc. I mention that in case it is relevant. However...

Today, I was having problems accessing outlook, I think what happened is that somehow when adding an account I (might have) saved the wrong password. I am not sure. So after some research I found out that you can remove the saved credentials in control panel and re-enter them.

When I was in there, I noticed some other credentials which I did not recognise in the 'Generic Credentials' area - there is a random / long complicated username which is under two areas....

  • virtualapp/didlogical
  • SSO_POP_Device
What are these and should I be worried? It is only a local PC with no MS account login etc.

Thanks
Lily

Created by Windows. Normal, and has been there forever.

"It's apparently a generic authentication process tied to the use of 'Windows Live Essentials' utilities. You can remove it but it will re-appear if you use Windows Live products. "

Thank you, I guess it might be outlook itself causing this.
