    Problem with ad.yieldmanager.com

    I have recently encountered a problem with ad.yieldmanager.com continually popping up on my computer. This @#$%^&* is apparently coming from Right Media which is in turn owned by, guess who, Yahoo! I get a warning from AVG Free that is has been identified as malicious content and deny access every time but it keeps right on coming up. I have tried denying access with Sumbelt Software Personal Firewall also to no avail. Doing a search on Google gives many suggestions for getting rid of this nuisance but most are very, very involved and, being something less than highly computer literate, I am hoping there is a simple way to do the job. If anyone has any ideas, I would sure like to hear them!!!

    Re: Problem with ad.yieldmanager.com

    What exactly is happening with the ad.yieldmanager.com site? Are you just getting a cookie or are you getting pop-up windows?

    Let me assume that you are using Internet Explorer 6 or 7 as your browser.

    In the case of cookies, you can take manual control and block particular domains from setting cookies. Under Tools > Internet Options, Privacy tab, choose "custom" cookie management to enable this option.

    In the case of pop-up windows, you can add the domain to your Restricted Sites list. This usually prevents external domains from popping up ad windows. Under Tools > Internet Options, Security tab, click the Restricted Sites icon and then the Sites button to add a site to the restricted sites list.

    Does that help?

    Try downloading Adaware, install and update it and then run a scan. It is supposed to find and remove this type of nasty.

    There is a tutorial you can use to help you do this here. HTH <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
