Bruz I have tried all the tools I can find to remove the popup carrier ad.yieldmanager.com. I have searched all files even the hidden ones and I cannot find it on my PC but it keeps popping up. Has anyone got any ideas.

Thanks for your input, I use firefox and I have done what you said already, I have opted out of ad.yieldmanger and used three different anti virus scanners. I have zone alarm and avg, I have tried every single method that I have read of on the Internet, all to no avail. It just keeps on coming.

In Firefox > Options > Content, have you ticked the box for 'Block popup windows'

Do you have Adblock Plus installed together with an ad-blocking subscriptions such as Easy List?

Adblock Plus

Easy List

If you haven't already got these installed then you may be able to create a filter to block this pernicious malware.
