    I'm having a problem with (it seems an ancient) problem: "Yieldmanager". Although, it seems that way. I get adds popping-up at the top of internet pages and sometimes get auto directed to a blank page with one add on it. It doesn't seem to harm the system further, by it's pretty anoying!! The adds seem to be connected arround the term "Yieldmanager".

    I've tried several tools to remove it, but nothing seems to bee working. Soom old thread in this forum (dating up to 2005) weren't any help either (ad.yieldmanager.com, etc.).

    Here's my HJT log, any suggestions?:

    Already tried MBAM. Here's a log from a run just now. It's in Dutch, but the essence is that it couldn't find any infections.

    Of course, anticipating the next question, I've run a full scan with MBAM. Found three infections.
    Can't say if it's clean now, because I've done this earlier and the next day the problem was back.

    Anyhow, here's the log from MBAM (full scan):

    Haven't done that yet. Seems that the problem has gone away with MBAM.
    Which is nice, but also strange because I've run MBAM before. Well, let's hope this is the end of it.

    Thnx for the help!
