Pretty simple fix:

Download the latest version of AdAware from

Update the reference file as can be found here:

Launch the program, and click on the Gear at the top of the start screen.

Click the "Scanning" button.
Under Drives, Folders and Files, select "Scan within Archives".
Click "Click here to select Drives + folders" and select your
installed hard drives.

Under Memory & Registry, select all options.
Click the "Advanced" button. 
Under "Log-file detail level", select all options.
Click the "Tweaks" button.

Under "Scanning Engine", select the following:
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under "Cleaning Engine", select the following:
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
Click on 'Proceed' to save these Preferences.

Run the Ad-Aware scan and allow it to remove everything it finds and
then REBOOT to allow it to finish.

This should clean VX55, and any other adware, spyware, or hijacks you may have.
