    No need to panic ...

    There's no reason to panic about the 2VX soft that install's the Audiogalaxy software.

    1 Just search your system for the 2VX.DLL file and then remove it.

    If the system doesn't let you remove this file Open Rgedit and go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\ {00000000-5eb9-11d5-9d45-009027c14662}".

    Delete the {00000000-5eb9-11d5-9d45-009027c14662} entry.
    Reboot computer.
    Search your "C" drive for 2VX.DLL, and delete it.

    That's all.

    First off, the vx2 homepage is different from is described in that story. Second, this should not be installed on my computer to track my information. Inserting ads is one thing. Even anonymous tracking to serve ads to me I might actually be interested in seeing. But to also gather any information I submit into a form? uh-uh. Not only is that a violation of my privacy, but it's an insecure transfer of potentially vital/private info over an insecure transfer. Unacceptable. I know nothing is truly secure, but there is no need to remove any work for someone that happens to be sniffing packets when I pass by...
