Hello. I need my new PC BACK, I'VE tried different malware removal programs, asked gateway, had my pc scanned this is still here! I can't go to any site (mainly yahoo and ebay) and click on anything without being sent to a blank google result page with ad.yieldmanager.com. I have also noticed a us.adserver.com not as big of a prob though. Is there someone who can get rid of this for me? I would also like to know which of all of these spyware programs I can get rid of and which I need to keep?

Hi, irratemum :)

First, I would suggest you replace the HOSTS file with the MVP's HOSTS. It will include entries that will block Yieldmanager.

Here is the link:

http://www.mvps.org/...sts.htm#Related

Note there are special instructions for Windows Vista.

Lets search the registry for Yieldmanager entries.

Download RegSeeker from here:

http://www.softpedia...nload-4229.html

Save and extract its contents to the desktop

  • A new folder will appear on your desktop. Within the folder, click on RegSeeker.exe. Click on Find in registry. Copy and paste the following string and click on Search.

    yieldmanager

  • Once the scanning has finished, click on Select, then on Select All.
  • Click on Action, then on Export selected items.
  • Name the export Report. It will be saved within the RegSeeker -> Backup folder.
  • Please Open Notepad.
  • Click on File->Open, change the Files of type to All files.
  • Navigate to the Report.reg file and click on Open
  • Copy and Paste its contents in a reply.

Warning: Please be careful with this program. In as much it can help you, improper use will damage the computer's registry.

Open a Command prompt to search for Yieldmanager entries in the drive.
  • Click on the Vista logo (used to be the "Start" button.
  • In the "Start Search" box type CMD or CMD.EXE.
  • Do NOT hit ENTER. Instead hit CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
  • You will be prompted by the UAC warning window. Click on CTRL+C or click on the "Continue" button.
  • Note that the CMD window has an "Administrator:" appended to the window title.
  • At the prompt type (Rather opy and paste) the following and press Enter after each command:

    Dir /a /s C:\*Yieldmanager.* > "%Userprofile%\Desktop\Results.txt"
    Exit


  • That command should search your entire drive. Be patient. A Results.txt file should appear on your desktop. Open this report in Notepad and post its contents in your nest reply.
