I was getting up to 100 ad.yieldmanager.com pop-ups. Tried everything. Deleted the "ad.yieldmanager" cookies, used SpyBot, NoAdWare, Norton, HiJackThis, Spy Sweeper, etc., etc.,. Did Regedit after Regedit. Even talked with my IT people who worked on my laptop for two hours with no success.

Finally, I opened one of the folders on my desktop and hit "CRTRL+H" and got my History displayed on the left side of the folder content window. I noticed that there were "ad.yieldmanager.com" references under every sub-"folder. Once I deleted them, problem solved.

I had no idea where this history was coming from since it was not in an IE or Mozilla window. Found it under the following:
C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxxxx\Local Settings\History

It seems that once ad.yieldmanager hits, it perpetuates itself in the History. Deleting those references should solve the problem.
