Posted 14 April 2009 - 11:11 AM

I've been searching countless forums, articles, etc. for ways of removing this bug. I have used Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, AVG, and CCleaner to try and get rid of this. It is causing my FF to bug out and occasionally my IE, after FF is bugged that is a last resort, but if I don't use FF it will bug out IE by itself. Nothing seems to be getting rid of the actual infection's roots so I'm hoping someone can help me here.

Here is my Hijack this:

Here is a HJT report, attached file, of when the bug has affected my FF browser. I also tried to access my cookies and it gave me "access is denied", along with when I try to close "explorer.exe" in the processes

This bug is really starting to annoy the hell out of me...

Did a bit of cleaning last night with CCleaner...

scanned fully this morning with Spybot S&D and found Right Media, ad yield manager cookie 2 (no surprise to me), but I also ran Ad-Aware full system scan, AVG 8.0 full system scan, and Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware fullsystem scan with NO FREAKIN LUCK finding anything on that stupid thing....

I'm at a loss truely...

here is what comes up when I open the cookie to ad.yieldmanager(2) (Be aware all of the folowing is on one line in the file):

Hello

While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.

Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, you wouldn't want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it, would you?

We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible.

Thank you for understanding.

I understand that this site is done by volunteers, but with 65 views and no help given, I don't think you can blame me for waiting this long and not getting a response to say I give up on this forum!

You can close it out...leave it in an un-solved area...whatever you like.

If you have a response to thism email me and put the subject as "ad-yield manager remove" or something...

I won't be checking this gain.

And one last thing, my resolution for this problem is going to be a re-image when I go home for leave.
