When I am working in my Yahoo mail account on my PC, something attempts to redirect the page to another site. I always receive a Dell error message that reads it cannot connect me to "x" website. Frequently, the web site is a pixelhost url?

Here is an example:
***********************************************************************************************
URL:
http://www.google.com/hws/dell-inc/afe?hl=en&channel=us&s=http://$pixelhost/serve/fb/pdc?uatFilter=true&cat=&name=landing&sid=2121
Error message on screen:
Sorry, we couldn't find http://%24pixelhost/serve/fb/pdc%3FuatFilter%3Dtrue. Here are some related websites: ...

***********************************************************************************************

I have had redirect issues previously on this computer, but they have always been related to google search and were resolved using malware removal tools or Microsoft Security Essentials software.

Is this an issue within Yahoo mail or a browser/PC issue?
