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.

  • edvis says:

    how to delete yieldmanager ?? from your PC?

  • dave gallegos says:

    Yahoo is no help with this. i wrote them an email stating my problem with this and I received no repy. So maybe if we all switched email services, they would take note and do something. I am interested in what d.black’s lawyer has to say about it. Can’t these people find honest less harmful ways to make money?

  • Richard Pluck says:

    When I try to download anything to get rid of that stupid ad.yieldmanager I get a pop up saying my security settings will not allow that. How do I circumvent this? OK Thank you

  • Gloria Arciniega says:

    This yieldmanager is kicking me off my yahoo e-mail, cannot stay on my mail, please help.

  • 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.

  • aurz 08 says:

  • Joe Frost says:

    Everytime I get on here, adyieldmanager keeps popping up, I tried to go by the directions but it wasn’t listed. So… I tried to go back online and it still pops up. I’m so confused.

  • 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

  • laurie says:

    Tried what Lee suggested ..states that another program is using/runnig those files and I must close it before deleting ..won’t allow me to get rid of the buggers ..crap!

  • juan gonzalez says:

    ok, i did what lee suggested in his last post, and it worked for me, also in to ie security properties i added the whole name of the site to blocked sites, it worked for me.

  • Jayne says:

    This is what I have done and it seems to have worked.

    Go to edit preferences.

    then show cookies.

    remove ad.yieldmanager.com cookies

  • John Penzenik says:

    I’ve read all the above comments and agree with all their frustrations. You get rid of this dude and it just comes right back. I’ve tried manual removal, spy ware removal, deleted all my cookies, and every which way others have recommended and it is right back. Does anybody know how to say “CLASS A LAWSUIT”??

  • Karim Reda says:

    Hi guys, I just wanted to say that SpyHunter is great!
    First of all I like that it starts by making sure that nobody changes your home address without your consent. Second it realy catches unwanted cookies such as those from Porn sites. Third its user friendly and I personally like it.
    Shame the full vesrion is not for free though, God bless crackers and patchers I guess (lol)
    Peace
    Karim

  • abdelwahid says:

    I AM SOME HOW LUCKY TO COME THROUGH THIS WEB. I COULD SOME EXTEND DELETE THE COOKIES BUT I STILL LOOK TO FIND BACK MY PC DATA AS FOR EXAMPLE I CAN NOT READ MY EXTERNAL PORTABLE HARD DISK. I THINK SOMEONE HIJACKED IT.

  • IT PRO GEEEK says:

    I said yahoo when i removed….it…..Also yahoo suks. Take my advice after 32 years of IT,,,Never use YHAOO> THEY have cheap servers..This is yahoo\’s problem which they should send out a patch, Or a fix for this,,,,, You SUCK YAHOOO)))>>>>>>

  • Aaron says:

    Make it easy on yourself. Stop using internet explorer. Switch to Mozilla Firefox.

  • tom says:

    I just used your instructions and they worked excellent.. My problem is all gone on the first try.. Thank you very much.

  • Jerry says:

    Sometimes it is better to just reload windows. This would mean store programs on flash drives, more, but it does work.

  • jim plante says:

    I get over 1000 spam messages a month and if this cures them it will be great.

  • StevieBD says:

    You could try to use Firefox to get around it – crappy workaround but at least it lets you get on with your life until you can figure it out. Also, Chrome from Google – their new browser will work too or even Netscape. Download anything BUT IE and you should be able to move on.

  • Zach says:

    How did you do it on Mozilla Firefox?

  • pam says:

    After reading all the comments, I thought, \"Jeez I guess I need to change my email addy\". Then I got the results of the scan. I got one for you. Just finished scanning my puter with spyhunter 3 and guess where my ad yieldmanager came from? The stupid games that are loaded on every vista operating system!!

  • Missouri Mule says:

    I’ve been working on a friend’s laptop with this devilish problem; she’s not computer savvy, so I’ve no idea where she picked it up. Still haven’t gotten rid of it; used spybot search and destroy, AVG, Ad-Aware, and Zone Alarm. Can’t shake the thing. As for reliable web-based email, I use mail.com and myway.com. I’d had great luck with both…no hitch hikers. Good luck with this monster.

  • Steve says:

    NO person alive HATES, HATES, HATES ad.yieldmanager more than me!!! I installed a fresh copy of Internet Explorer from the MS website and STILL had my Yahoo redirected by this scourge. Out of desperation I installed Internet Explorer 8, Beta 2. \"Internet Explorer is currently running with add-ons disabled. Click here to manage, disable, or remove your add-ons.\" keeps popping up like a pop-up blocker. Regardless, I am now able to access Yahoo using Internet Explorer. I do not pretend to know why or how, but this might work for you too. I did notice some weird behavior in how pages are displayed, but atleast it works. The best work-around I have found is to download the Opera web browser and use it for Yahoo (especially email). Apparently the ad.yieldmanager THUGS have not targeted the smaller browsers yet. My next step is to file a complaint with my state’s Attorney General’s office. Cookies are one thing, but hijacking a computer is illegal. I hope all of you file complaints as well!

  • Lewis says:

    With Vista, yieldmanager problem can be avoided if the site is blocked in Internet Options, Privacy tab, Sites. Just add yieldmanager.com to the list of blocked sites. Works with Doubleclick and others too. I do not know how to do this on other operating systems, or for browsers other than IE. Various advertising sites still try to add cookies, but they are blocked, preventing the problem. Good luck!

  • Khalid says:

    Every day I turn on antivirus prog. and it find ad.yieldmanager cookies and delete it , Also I shocked when my e_mail contacts changed makes me a problems sending e_mails , From where it comes? How can I get red of it . I am afriad about my personal informations

  • d. black says:

    this is ridiculous. every one online says to scan this thing with spy ware and remove it. and most these places cost money. I pay a good price for panda anti virus so my problems is not as bad as most people. I too use gmail. yahoo is too gross to use anymore. i found that walla.com has good email but not as good as gmail. google has an entire association online of spam haters etc… its been against it from day one and they have a zero policy. you would think microsft would of released a removal tool for this or some kind of information. not even norton is helping with this issue. they say oh its just a cookie. whatever! not just a cookie. its a hi jack device that once you get it, it keeps comming back. I am going to go digging in my registry and see if I can find it and delete it. those cookies come back regardless. I think i am about to tear up my registry and try to remove it permenantly that way. i do have the yahoo tool bar and the anti spy on it. doesn’t do anything. the blasted thing comes back. i cant stand this anymore. i will be damn, dead and rotten before i allow that company to high jack my computer. I will call my lawyer tomorrow and we if we can start a pettion online and make them stop using that kind of inbedded cookie or provide a removal from their site. Its happened before with other compnies including that really old crodidile password gadget from 1998 and 1999. I remember that one. Eventually the company provided help and aid to those who were tortured by this masked vandal. I will let you know what I find if I succeed on the removal. if seems to be in a form of a trojan from what i understand. so it is considered kind of a confusing little virus. it inbeds its self in different ways and literally takes over the use of you PC. its no wonder I am more of a windows refugee than a lover. I only have one system with windows vista ulitmate. All my other computers are xandros.com and linux based. I dont think it matters on the speed of your pc either. i a 6000 + processor, 4 drives. 3 terybites. 8 gigs of ram. Balony! this things is in so many places online. microsoft or as i call it, microshit, should help out. they have in the past for things like this. I can’t believe how people think its not a big deal when it is. anything taking over your pc is not a good thing. I dont want them recording my passwords also and taking me to other sites. I have 3 pop up blockers on. one from panda. one from yahoo. and one in the microshit browser. this beast get through everything. it doesn’t care what you have. i think its a trojan acting as a cookie. i can’t stand it. will have info hopefully soon that I can share.

  • David says:

    So, How do we check yahoo mail without getting it? Thanks.

  • femi says:

    i cannot type the letter ‘y’ and it keeps on repeating when i want to type, i always have to paste it all the time.someone told me it’s the yield manager. please how can i remove it

  • Charish says:

    It’s me again…..I found that gmail does not have advertising like yahoo…….my internet business email is yahoo so I need to use it for now. But what I do..and it takes time….is to go in to tempary files and delete yieldmanager every time I use yahoo email……..I have found you only need to be on the page for yieldmanager to put a cookie in your temp files…..so when you leave yahoo….go in to temp files and delete yieldmanager…also doubleclick……and any other that is advertising. I also do not use yahoo to browse the web any more……I changed to google……..I check my temp files every 30 min………….google is safer and no yieldmanager on it. also if you have to many cookies in your temp file your computer will slow down. so to say if you go to a page that has advertising, the advertiser of that add has put yieldmanager tracking cookie with the add to see if you have been there. You just have to keep deleting it. since I have found all this out my computer runs fast. I have a 3.0 processor and 320G hard drive……I would say is learn how to keep your computer clean. The sad thing is yahoo must know about this and is allowing it.

  • Lillian Fry says:

    I have bought Error Smart and "removed" ad.yieldmanager.com and still it is there. What elce can I do? If this cookie can trace my actions , why is it allowed? Is it no different than looking in windows? How do I get rid of this plague?

  • marcia says:

  • mad says:

    I have also downloaded, installed, run numerous anti-spyware +antivirus programs without luck. They all find the problem, apparantly clean the problem and as soon as I get back on the net it comes back – all kinds of ads including Gladiatus. I took my pc to the local shop for professional removal, they said it was done I got it home and it was back in 1 minute. There has to be some way of removing this thing. If not could I at least strangle the bastard punks and lowlifes that wrote the bloody thing?!!!!

  • mick says:

    I agree with mr callahan above…surely its illegal? I have never understood why they are allowed to persist in these activity… if anyone knows where we stand it would be great if you could enlighten ….. regards slower pc

    Heather wrote: "I have run AdAware, Spybot, and Avast, and gotten rid of anything questionable, but still this thing plagues me. Any more ideas?" I tried all that + AVG Antispyware + SuperAntiSpyware. Every program found stuff, and I also got rid of everything questionable. I still continue to be plagued with these ad.yieldmanager.com adverts that replace existing ads at various websites, like IMDb.com, in both Firefox & IE. One ad even has an annoying chime. If you find an answer please post, as I will do if I find a solution. Thanks.

  • ghostrider01 says:

    Heather, 

    Cookies are not so dangerous. They usually collect and report information about what websites you visit and what you do at those websites. If you are getting warning pop-ups, it is a sign that you may have some other spyware on your computer. You said that you used many programs and they didn’t help you to get rid of this parasite. Sometimes it happens, if the programs don’t have the latest updates for particular parasite. If you would have a reliable anti-spyware program, you could contact the support team and they would solve your problem.

  • Heather says:

    I have downloaded and run your ad.yieldmanager.com scanner, and done everything on this web page, but I do not find any files that contain the word "yieldmanager". Yet I still am getting the security warning pop-ups about ad.yieldmanager.com, and usually a pair, one after the other, each time. I think there is another, more sinister type of cookie used by these guys, that either corrupts an existing file, or hides itself by using an innocuous name. I have run AdAware, Spybot, and Avast, and gotten rid of anything questionable, but still this thing plagues me. Any more ideas?

  • IceS says:

    Thank you so much for this! I was going out of my mind when my ‘Norton Security Scan’ found a ‘ad.yieldmanager’ cookie on my computer, and couldn’t get rid of it; lucky I came across this!
