Hi,

I'm recieving pop-ups from ad.yieldmanager.com even when
I'm away from my machine and there is no IE open.

I'm not entirely sure if ad.yieldmanager.com exists (I
tried visiting the URL and also Googl'ing it, with zero
results), but I found this URL in the Flash Settings of
the pop-up.

I've run the latest signatures from Ad-Aware and, of
course, Microsoft AntiSpyware.

Thanks for investigating.

-Rex

Thanks for the very quick response.

I could not find a direct method of removing
yieldmanager. CWShredder seems not to work for other
people (nor did it work for me).

The solutions that I've read require the yeildmanager
server to be added to a hosts file.

Is there a simpler way to block the ads or remove
reference to yieldmanager?

Thanks again.

Hi

I believe its better to remove this rather then to only block it.
Cant find any good removal instruction.

Start with Basic:

Spybot and Lavasofts Adaware, Spybot first.

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-....html?tag=list

Also to remove all temporarily junk with this tool:

www.ccleaner.com

Then if above fails go to a Forum for HijackThis logs:

I've run Spybot, Adaware and ccleaner. I still get
browsers popping up out of nowhere from ad.yieldmanager

Is there any progress on MS's end on this?

Try running your anti-spyware programs in Safe Mode.
