    That?s a stealthy software that?s automatically added by bishop anders of maker of black hat tools like youtube genius and other shit.

    He keeps popping you this little window at the bottom right of the screen that shows you his ads.. and this is the product hes selling that makes these damn popups is seotrafficsuite.So if you install any of his software and even uninstall it later, it remains on your PC..

    To get rid of it, right click on start> and in the programs.. see for an entry called ?Startup?

    There you will see an entry called ?VistaMessage?

    Right click on that and select properties and in the ?details? tab youll see the folder where its on your PC. Delete it and restart your PC

    If your a member of this forum sorry but your vistamessage totally steals machine resources.
