Hi there

I'm hoping you guys can help. Every once in a while a pop-up appears from ad.yieldmanager.com. It does not matter (it just happened right now btw!) if I'm using my internet browser (I use Firefox) and the pop-up is always via Iexplorer. About every two to five minutes or so i hear a clicking sound from my speakers as if I am clicking on a link.

I have tried a lot. Latest I tried ATFcleaner, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Ccleaner, SUPERAntiSpyware and Ad-aware but to no avail. I have updated my flashplayer and Adobe reader as well.

Help would be much appreciated.

I posted this post in the Virus, Spyware & Malware Removal as it seemed more fitting, so this one can be considered closed.

Thanks for the update but we will keep this open just in case there are other issues after the malware tech has declared your system cleaned.

Thx.

Maybe you can help me since I've got lucky enough to get a reply so fast?

I am really getting frustrated about the pop-ups and I think my system have slowed considerably. It takes over five minutes from turning on the computer to the webbrowser loads. I didn't use to take that long.

I'm sure part of the issue with the browser is the possible infection but lets take a look at a few things and see what shows up.
Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:
1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.


Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...

DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

First problem I see below

Problems & Suggestions:
Problem Disk free space is only 7% on drive C:.
Problem Disk free space is only 3% on drive D:.

At 10% of free space left the MFT on the main drive can become corrupted causing problems.
This won't cause the pop up you are seeing but it will and most likely is causing some speed problems.
I would suggest getting rid of programs you don't need or use anymore through the Add\Remove Programs in Control Panel.
Next I suggest following the steps below to further take care of some issues also.
Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:

+ "Adobe ARM"
+ "Adobe Reader Speed Launcher"
+ "QuickTime Task"
+ "SunJavaUpdateSched"
+ "DAEMON Tools Lite"



When done restart computer and then:



Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:
It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged

Please let me know how everything is running when all steps are complete

Ok, I did all the thing you suggested, but startup is still painstakingly slow. I have a feeling it is caused by some sort of conflict in the startup, but I don't have the skills to zero in on the problem.

I did free a lot of space on both harddrives, and that helped a bit after defragging. :-)

OK then we need to look at the MsConfig Startup and Services for problems there. Please do the following and let me know the results.
Lets see what you have in your startup

Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
IMPORTANT! In case of laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results
