Thanks Joe, have done this already and still no go....but I thank you for your quick reply...I already had mbam and ran scan, and no virus detected..any other suggestions???
is this happening in IE (Internet Explorer), or in another browser?
the annoying popup: is it a SECURITY WARNING, saying something like "The current Web page is trying to open a site on the Internet. Do you want to allow this?" Then it lists the current site, which would mention/include ad.yieldmanager.com , followed by some "random" Internet site name, with buttons for you to press YES or NO? and then, under a line, a yellow shield with an exclamation point in it, saying "Warning: allowing this can expose your computer to security risks. If you don't trust the current Web page, choose No".
is that what you're getting? something very "similar"? or is it completely different??
