    As nobody has replied here are the vbseo uninstall instructions that I copied these from their site before it died - see the bit at the end about .htaccess redirects (it looks like you need the last one) for your threads but I'm not sure about your categories.

    I don't know much about .htaccess rules as I run windows servers, so I hope this help as it's the most I can do.

    If you ever need to uninstall vBSEO , you can use the following instructions. Make sure you carefully follow each step.
    1. Login to your vBSEO Cp and disable vBSEO
    2. Login to your Admincp and Browse to Plugins & Products
    3. Uninstall vBSEO product file , on the next step you'll be given 2 options
      • If you ever plan to install vBSEO on the same domain , choose Keep vBSEO data in Database
      • If you will not use vBSEO again choose Cleanup vBSEO Data
    4. Delete all files include .htaccess from your server via ftp. You can find the list of files that needs to be deleted below.

    After uninstallation you can also redirect your indexed content to original vBulletin urls. Please carefully check the rewrite rules and use the one that fits your current url structure. If your url structure isn't listed below please post a sample example so we can supply the correct rules.

    If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadid-threadname.html use the following .htaccess
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule [^/]+/([0-9]+)-[^/]+\.html [URL=""]$1[/URL] [L,R=301]

    If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadname-threadid.html use the following .htaccess
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule [^/]+/[^/]+-([0-9]+)\.html [URL=""]$1[/URL] [L,R=301]
    If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadname-threadid/ use the following .htaccess
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule [^/]+/[^/]+-([0-9]+)/ [URL=""]$1[/URL] [L,R=301]
