Hi, I consider myself a bit of dunce with PCs but usually manage to do what I need but I'm really stuck on removing Ad.yieldmanager. Its supposed to be a cookie but after deleting cookies, temp files, scans with AVG , defender, malwarebytes and checking other sites I'm at a loss. Im running vista on a laptop and the fan is driving me mad. Any ideas?.......... please

Thanks JohnD

Tried the free one which picked up a more stuff than AVG but Ad.yieldmanager is still there. I can see it briefly pop up on the progress bar when on IE8.
If it is really just a cookie, I would use "Tools" "internet Options" "Privacy" "Sites" "Block"

You could also (afterwards) do "Tools" "internet Options" "Security" "Restricted Sites" "sites" "Add"

Ive already done that which prevents pop ups but reading other sites its supposed to be 'like' a cookie but acts as spyware. It does not seem to be malware or spyware so the anti software doesnt pick it up. If that makes sense.
If it is only a tracking cookie:
Download and install Ccleaner
When installing, watch out for the tick box that will install the Yahoo Toolbar if left ticked
Once installed, click Check For Updates (bottom right of the screen)

Ccleaner. Initial Setup and Operation.

After initial setup, all settings will be saved and only the Instructions In Bold Underline need be

Click Registry, then Scan For Issues

Keep Ccleaner installed and run the Cleaner section about once a week to tidy up any leftovers from browsing etc.
