Nevertheless, this program and all of its components might be related to certain computer security risks. Hence, you should remove at least VOPackage from your computer if you do not want to be swarmed with adware.
The main homepage for VuuPC is located at vuupc.com. Our guys at research team say that VOPackage usually comes bundled with VuuPC because they have the same publisher.
