    Your computer may be infected with viruses or adware or spyware. Try using different antivirus and run full system scan. Update your current antivirus to latest. There are may anti-adware and anti-spyware applications available on internet. So run these application. Good luck!

    .vbs is not a windows file. .vbs files are Visual Basic Scripting files. You may have application installed on your computer that are infected with Trojan. You can run Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to remove installation information for programs that were installed by using Windows Installer. Windows Installer CleanUp Utility will not remove the actual program from your computer.
