jQuery is often used by templaters and other extensions. jQuery must not be loaded more than one time. To prevent incompatibilities, you can easily switch off the loading of the virtuemart jQuery library. (Only turn off Virtuemart Jquery IF your template, or other modules are loading Jquery). This can be checked by viewing the page source.

This happens, when you do not have access to the jQuery of google. So you need to prevent using the jQuery of google. But you can't store the configuration. So you must

edit the virtuemart.cfg file in /administrator/components/com_virtuemart 
and change google_jquery=1 to google_jquery=0
Then go in your database and empty the table _virtuemart_adminmenuentries. Just use refresh your backend and the problem should be solved.
