I would suggest leaving VR off unless you're shooting in dim light. This is a very in-depth article on how leaving VR turned on all the time can degrade your images: http://www.bythom.com/nikon-vr.htm

It could also be a focus issue with the lens. My first 18-55 had a bad focus problem (it was confirmed that it was the lens, not the body). Nikon repaired it for free under warranty and now the pictures are tack sharp (to me at least).

Thanks for the link. Quite an indepth article that will take awhile to digest.

I still am thinking it might be a problem with the lens.  How do you go about confirming?
