I was having trouble with my Yahoo account and was advised by a Geek trying to help me that that the following link I identified is a virus https.//s.yimg.com/rq/Darla/2-7-5/html/r-sf.html I have run Malwarebytes Anti Malware and it indicates no issues. If this is indeed a virus how do I get rid of it? Thanks!

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
- Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
- Select additions at the bottom
- Press Scan button.
- It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
- Please attach both logs generated.

The problem I was having was that when I went to Yahoo.com or Yahoo Mail my screen would jump immediately to an ad that could not be closed. The problem lasted for several days but now has gone away. Another Geek suggested I had a virus. Everything is now working fine. Thanks!
