The problem that I have had is all my anti virus programs find the ad.yieldmanager.com & it will not delet. Today I got in the tools & clicked privacy & then site & added that site to the blocked list. I don't know if it has worked or not as now I have found my explorer search bar won't work. I just get a notice that - Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage - I re-downloaded explorer 8 hoping it would fix itself & it didn't. If anyone knows the answer to this one, I need help. My google search bar works in explorer. I can't explain this. Can You?

Did anything Johnw suggested in your Jan 23 thread work?
Start- Control Panel- Internet Options- General tab
Look for Browser History click Settings- click View Files
A Temp Internet Files window should open, look down it until you find a cookies like:
(user)@content.yieldmanager delete them.

Did you download Malwarebytes? update and run a full scan in safe mode.

I have did all both of you have suggested. When I right click on ad.yieldmanager & admin@content.yieldmanager.com, which is the two that are there, they will not delete. I have malware bytes, hitman pro 3.5 & super- antispy pro plus microsoft security, registry repair. spybot, adaware free edition. I bought hitman pro & auper anti spy after having this problem. Now my internet explorer won't work. My google search does, but not the explorer search bar.

but it won't delete.& my pages keep re-directing.


There was no need to buy any of the apps.
Run these in the exact order
1- rkill.xe (it will stop the malware procress)
2- TDSS Killer (will remove any rootkits if found)
3- Malwarebytes (update it and run a full scan fixing all it finds.

If you still have the problem, do the above in safe mode and that should get it.
Another utility you might try is trojan remover. Run that and fix all it finds.

My google search does, but not the explorer search bar.
That is confusing. Have you tried resetting IE? You could have some bad addons.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
