    I have a new computer that has virus and adware protection on it and all the latest udates. Already it has been infected. When ever I use Yahoo email it takes forever to view my mail. It is always downloading ads from ad.yieldmanager.com and other sites. I have blocked thoes site but it still happens. This only happens when using Yahoo email as far as I can tell. No popups are occuring but when I attempt to use a search engine (like Google) it says it can not find the site when I attempt to go to it, It does not do this for all sites.This happens when using Internet Explorer 8 or Firefox 3.6. I have ran ALL the known good adware/virus detection software but they find nothing. Does anybody have a fix that works for this? Remember I have Windows 7. I have the very same problem on a older computer that is using Windows XP.

    You did not mention what AV or AM apps you use. I use Microsoft Security Essentials with great success. This includes both AV and AM protection and is free. Perhaps it is time to look at different email. Although I use Windows Live mail and Hotmail, I have heard great things about Google Gmail as well. Have you tried another mail program? Also, it is possible that you have not turned on your pop up blockers. Check these settings.
