I have been noticing that my browser keeps inserting a page <hxxp://ad.yieldmanager.com?????> into my back/forward pages when I am viewing websites. My home page was www.comcast.net (my isp) and after my homepage loaded I would navigate away and go about my business on the internet. Every so often I would go up and hit the back button but nothing would happen, then click it again and still nothing. So I would bring down the drop down list of web pages and that web site (ad.yieldmanager.com) would be 2 pages back and I would have to choose the website just beyond that to get it to navigate back from where I came from. I currently pay for and use XoftSpySE v4.33 and Ad-Aware 2008 Plus Version 220.127.116.11, I also use Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.6.0 and your program Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware which are both free. I use these spyware programs regularly and they all find different things to remove each time I use them but niether ever come up with anything related to this yieldmanager spyware. I literally spent 5 hours straight last weekend trying to remove this from my computer, this being one attempt of several over the last few months all of which have gotten me nowhere. Now here is where it gets wierd. I started noticing if I did not let my comcast.net (my isp) homepage load completely before I navigated away, then the yieldmanager site quit appearing in my recent visited sites list and I could use my back button normally anytime I tried. Then as soon as I went to my comcast.net homepage and let it completely load ad.yieldmanager.com would be back almost immediately. Due to this I changed my homepage to another site and reran all my spyware programs and have avoided comcast's home page for a week now and have yet to see yieldmanager show back up. Can you explain this to me, why would my internet service provider put this into thier homepage? I don't understand why that would be, why would a huge corp. like comcast let something like this spread from thier homepage, not only did it mess with my back button and act as a tracking cookie I swear it slowed down my computer. Do I have a virus that is just attacking through that site or is it from comcast, I surely can't figure it out.
Thanks for any advice you can give me
