Hey all:

I'm a college student, and haven't really been having a problem with this until recently when i tried to log on to my favorite guitar tabs website, and now its war. Can someone help me out with this, or at least point me in the right direction?

"ad.yieldmanager.com" is spy/ad/malware and this sounds like the remnant from a botched removal.

So right from the top, I'd suggest installing and using Spybot Search and Destroy. Be sure to run it in safe mode (without networking).

I'd also run a full antivirus scan -- from safe mode -- for good measure to be sure your machine not infected with anything.

Reboot your PC and press F8 as your computer is in the process of loading up windows.
If I have not replied back to your post in 3 days, please send me a PM.

to further help you may we know your installed antivirus program and what other protection programs you have on board, when were they all last fully updated and run on full computer scans? then we can suggest other appropriate tools for you to run
