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):

Download [color=red]OTL[/color] to your Desktop
  • Double-Click on the icon to run it. Make sure all o ther windows are closed and to let it frun uninterrupted.
  • OTL should now start. Change the following settings:
  • Change Drivers to All.
  • Change Standard Registry to All
  • Under File Scan, change File age to 30
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
    netsvcs
    msconfig
    safebootminimal
    safebootnetwork
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.*
    /md5start
    svchost.exe
    eventlog.dll
    scecli.dll
    netlogon.dll
    cngaudit.dll
    sceclt.dll
    ntelogon.dll
    logevent.dll
    iaStor.sys
    nvstor.sys

  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not chage any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.TXT and Extras.txt (first run only). These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please post the contents of these files in your next reply.

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!
