    While recently running AddAware it informed me that something called VX2 BetterInternet was found (an executable along with numerous files associated with it). I was wondering if anyone here knows exactly what this is? What it does? And for that matter how it may have gotten onto my computer in the first place? Any help at all in stemming my curiosity would be appreciated.

    Thank you for your help, I heard it could be tricky to remove so ran addaware, deleted what it found, rebooted then ran a customized deep scan as sugested by them, it found more instances which I removed. Then I rebooted again and one last deep scan, which came up clean. mostly I posted here because I was curious where it may have come from, the only prog I downloaded in a while was Bejewled from Popcap games which looks like just a java applet to me.
