Windows PCs come with a Credential Manager app that stores usernames, passwords, and addresses on your system. Lately, users report an unknown virtualapp/didlogical credential stored in the Manager on their Windows.

Sometimes, you can experience the Credential Manager not working on Windows 10.

What is virtualapp/didlogical?

Windows has a couple of Live features that users can use. Whenever you use any Windows Live feature, such as Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live, and other Windows services, it stores a credential. This credential is known as Virtualapp/Didlogical.

Furthermore, Virtualapp/Didlogical saves automatically to your Credential Manager as a network credential or Internet Address. Therefore, though it seems like a threat or malware, it is a legitimate entity not associated with viruses or malware.

Also, Virtualapp/Didlogical credentials usually have a redundant network username, meaning you can’t trace to a particular network address. So, it is why you have the option to remove it.

Is it safe to delete virtualapp/didlogical?

It is tasking to delete the virtualapp/didlogical credential from the Windows Credential Manager. It is because it always finds its way back if you remove it through the Credential Manager.

Nevertheless, deleting the virtualapp/didlogical credential is not a threat and is safe, depending on how you go about it.

How do I remove virtualapp/didlogical?

Before trying any advanced steps for removing the virtualapp/didlogical, observe the following preliminary checks:

If the virtualapp/didlogical is still in your Windows Credential Manager, use the steps below to remove it:

1. Use the Remove from vault option

  1. Press Windows + R key to open the Run dialog box, type control panel, then press Enter.
  2. Click User Accounts, then click Credential Manager.
  3. Next, select Windows Credentials and open Generic Credentials.
  4. Click virtualapp/didlogical, click the Remove from vault button, and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.
  5. Restart your PC and see if the credential is still there.

The Remove button in the Credential Manager works for some users. However, it doesn’t remove the credential because it always finds its way back. You can read how to add, remove & edit files in Windows Credential Manager via various tools.

2. Disable Credential Manager in Services

  2. Right-click the CredentialManager and select Properties from the drop-down.
  3. In the Startup type and select Disabled. Click Stop under the Service status, choose OK and click Apply.

By disabling the Windows Credential Manager, the virtualapp/didlogical should be safely removed since there’s no activity to save anymore. You can check other Windows Services that can be safely disabled in this guide.

3. Perform a System Restore

  1. Left-click the Start button, type restore, and click on Create a restore point.
