Ad.yieldmanager.com Description


Ad.yieldmanager.com Screenshot 1Ad.yieldmanager.com, adyieldmanager.com or yieldmanager.com, is a tracking cookie designed to keep track of how many times you visit a website and how long you stay, your browser type, your IP address, and other web surfing activities which are sent back to the cookie’s host site.

Generally, cookies are not dangerous in nature. Cookies are even helpful since they allow websites to store user preferences (login credentials, personalize web pages, etc.). Yet there are cookies that are used for malicious purposes.

In the wrong hands, a cookie can be harmful and turn into a security issue when it’s used to steal your personal information. If you click on a hyperlink that takes you to the “login” page of a trustworthy website, an attacker, using a method called cross-site scripting, has the ability to manipulate a hyperlink to make it appear it’s coming from the trustworthy website, view or tamper with the website’s cookies, harvest your information and use it to access your sensitive information.

Is ad.yieldmanager.com spyware?


Although ad.yieldmanager.com is not considered spyware or malware, in the hands of an attacker it can prove to be harmful. So it’s up to you if you want your surfing habits or sensitive information to be shared across multiple domains or sold to third-parties for malicious purposes.

Why do I keep getting security warning pop-ups about ad.yieldmanager.com?


If you’re getting security warning pop-ups alerting you the presence of an infection labeled as ad.yieldmanager.com, your computer may be infected with a trojan.

Trojan makers are profit-driven and in order to steal your money and identity, they use trojans to generate fake security warning pop-ups which are designed to list fictitious infections allegedly found on the computer and redirect you to a website where you’re tricked into buying a rogue software.

Target computer users may repeatedly receive the pop-up message, which asks ‘Do you want to open or save get-user-id.js from ad.yieldmananager’. The pop-up message may occur intermittently, but even when the PC user clicks on ‘X’ to close the tricky message, every time it keeps popping up on the desktop of the compromised PC.

How do I delete ad.yieldmanager.com cookie?


You can delete ad.yieldmanager.com cookie by accessing your cookie settings on your browser or using a good anti-spyware program that scans your computer and quickly removes the cookie for you.

After you’ve deleted the Ad.yieldmanager.com cookie, you have the option to block ad.yieldmanager.com cookie in your browser. Follow these steps on how to block ad.yieldmanager.com in your IE or Firefox browser:

For Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet Options > Privacy > Sites: type in yieldmanager.com > Block.

For Firefox: Tools > Options > Privacy > Use custom settings for history > Exceptions > Address of web sites: type in yieldmanager.com > Block.

Note: If your default homepage redirects to another website, multiple browsers inexplicably open, bogus security alert pop up, your desktop wallpaper has been changed to display an image of an installation window, or system functions have been disabled, you may have more than a cookie problem; a trojan may have secretly installed on your computer. It’s highly recommended that you run a system scan with a reliable anti-spyware software to detect and remove trojans and other types of malware.

    opt-out will not fix this issue.

  • Herve says:

    It is a tracking cookies problem. You must delete cookies and enable Tracking Protection List (TPL) on your browser.(tools–>tracking protection : in the settings, block ad.yieldmanager.com + google-analytics.com (3 lines 2x .js+1 close button)+ doubleclick.net)

  • Melinda M says:

    TO Yolanda, thank you so much for finding the Op-out site. I just did it and I am also getting SpyHunter to have it for the future. I am just upset because I have Norton and their are so many customers on their that have it too, and Norton does not have an answer to the problem, as a matter of fact they say the site is safe!!! I never had this on my computer as long as I had the FREE microsoft essentials, and as soon as I got Norton this comes on my computer, things that make you go, Hum?

  • yolanda says:

    How dare you go into my facebook!

  • Pearl says:

    I did a google search and found this http://content.yieldmanager.edgesuite.net/opt_out.html
    It is an OPT OUT from yield manager. I opted out and it says it put a cookie on my computer. Can I trust this? I also followed your instructions and blocked the cookies, so it should not be on my computer?
    You have successfully opted out.
    Yield Manager placed an opt-out cookie in your browser’s cache that indicates to our servers that you have opted out. No further Yield Manager cookie will be stored. Your decision does not affect ad delivery, but it turns off our ability to select the most relevant ads for you or keep track which ads you have seen and how often you have seen them.

    NOTE: If you delete your cookies or switch to a different browser you will have to repeat this procedure.

  • Steve Willington says:

    Can’t get to system restore or boot in safe mode, I’m getting blue screen. Also can’t download anything or install anything on my computer either. Any ideas?

  • Mark Vinette says:

    I have Norton and Spyhunter and several other programs. I have added yieldmanager and all of its derivetives to my blocked list an this damn thing still gets through. I looked up yieldmanager and it was suggested that spyhunter be added which I did. I was even sent a site to go to by spyhunter which is supposedly an opt out site for this thing, still keeps popping up.

  • Matt says:

    on a STANDARD windows XP install, I usually add "127.0.0.0 ad.yieldmanager.com" somwhere after the default "127.0.0.1 localhost" listing. (There’s a tab after the 0 and the 1, respectivley)
    This basically gives an error when something tries going to the URL. It tells the computer that the site is local to the computer. Gives an error, but, blocks it from going to the website.
    I do this thing with the most part of spyware/ads/etc, when I can. Tends to reduce the crap I get for popups, etc (usually just a page that can’t be found..)
    VERY similar to the help Lewis posted on Sept 7, 2008,11:43: Vista, adding blocked sites.

    My 2nd Windows 7 woe tonight, my laptop simply rebooted while playing backgammon at Yahoo games, a Java program that I’ve played hundreds of times before.

  • Houston says:

    One of the most annoying spam scams is a cookie virus knows as ad.yieldmanager.com. Any good anti-malware package will find this on your computer. The domain yieldmanager.com is owned by a supposed "Anti-fraud" firm – markmonitor.com. The ad.yieldmanager.com tracks all of your surfing habits and forwards your email to several spamming companies. There are a lot of articles on the net stating what a great job the markmonitor.com firm is doing in preventing/tracking down phishing scams. Great cover, but it’s just a front. If you don’t believe me, go to register.com and lookup the yieldmanager.com domain and yahoodns.net and run a "whois" on them. You will find them both owned by markmonitor.com. Then run a ping or tracert on either domain and you will see that the ip addresses change every few minutes, making it almost impossible to block.

    What I suggest is that once you verify my info about this company, pass the word. Put it on every blog you can find. Put the scammers out of business. A complaint about this company has already been submitted to the FTC

ANOTHER THING, EVERY TIME I VISIT A PAGE, REGARDLESS OF WHAT IT IS, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE THAT INTERNET EXPLORER CANNOT DISPLAY THIS PAGE APPEARS? I’M OBVIOUSLY SURFING THE NET? WHATEVER. YOU CANT FIX THE PROBLEM AND IF YOU DO YOULL JUST HAVE ANOTHER. TAKE YOUR COMPUTER AND BASH IT WITH A HAMMER. GET A CONSTRUCTION JOB. HAHAHA

  • Edward says:

    I get the same thing. I installed Emsisoft for 30 days free and says blocked every five seconds for yieldmanager and media.plex something and like 39 others. Maybe I should buy the program. Dont know.

  • Parental control software says:

    Sometimes we tend to forget the password or any information that we sign in in a site. But Ad.yieldmanager.com is a cookie that helps us in remembering or tracking what information have we entered in any sites that we’ve visited. Though sometimes we tend to forget things but there are also some ways on how to retrieve any of those.

    Hey Guys this is unbelievable This thread started in 2008 and is still going with the same problem in 2011 ..that’s 4 years or there abouts !! How come these morons are still active ?
    I found they had infiltrated one of my web2.0 sites ( webs.com) I’ve got their crap in my sidebar and can’t edit it out. It does not show whilst in editing mode only in review or live on the web.
    I also deleted it from my cookies thanks to the good advice from Lee way back in 2008 LOL, even though for some reason it does not seem to come up on my computer, maybe because I downloaded and ran “Malwarebytes antI malware” because some other nightmare invader took over my PC recently with continuous warnings about non existent viruses and stopped me being able use it properly.
    Yield manager’s ads comes up however if I try and watch a movie or an old TV show on online.
    What ever happened to the folks that were going to sue this company…
    Any Ideas to do something about theses sort of sites would be a good move.

  • fourbeaner says:

    There is a good chance that if you continue and continue to delete this from your computer, and it keeps coming back or your anti-virus software says it cannot be deleted, it is part of a PROGRAM that you have installed. You will have to uninstall the program for it to be removed permanently. You can also set your computer to delete cookies and browser history every time you log off the internet. Click on “Tools”, select “Internet Options”, select the “General” tab, check the box under “Browsing History”. Go ahead and delete the browsing history, too. Cannot urge more strongly GOOD, REPUTABLE anti-virus software. It may seem expensive, but considering the financial damage that can ruin your life if someone hacks your computer, it’s well worth the cost. My McAfee caught and deleted ad.yieldmanager.txt today, then simply reported it to me. I had to do nothing. Good luck to you all!

  • roy anderson says:

    I also had the iritating security pop-ups and the cookies. After deleting the cookies go to Tools / Internet Options / Security / Trusted Sites / Sites. You will find a list. Delete About: and any thing else not recognized. Leave your ISP address. After I did this the pop-ups stopped and so did the cookies , assuming you have already blocked them. 3 days now and my computer has returned to normal speed and function. Hope this works for anyone in need.

  • Princekefe says:

    Internet options – Security Tab – Sites – Put website you want too block. make sure its http://www.yieldmanager.com and .net + .org

    since ive been doing that way. its stop those sites. but what i dont understand is, when i block one site. another site pops up for example,

    my first issue was doubleclick, when i restricted that site. another site came up like yieldmanager – came up when i switched off my lap top and logged back on.. visited youtube or any sites. then in 30mins i do another scan and hello another site appears –

    what is causing this. is there something that we are unaware off. i dont want to spend a whole year putting address sites in restriction.

    if anyone can help. post me
