Ad.yieldmanager.com is a known adware site that adds cookies in your browser to track your personal information and browsing habits as you surf the web. It is used by some web sites as part of their advertising so you may encounter it often.

These are more specific instructions.

To remove ad.yieldmanager.com cookies (ad.yieldmanager.com, content.yieldmanager.com, yieldmanager.com, yieldmanager.net, etc), launch Internet Explorer.
  • Go to Tools > Internet Options > General tab.
  • Under Browser History, click the Settings button to open Temporary Internet Files and History Settings.
  • Click the View Files button.
  • At the top menu, click on View and select Details.
  • Click the Internet Address column header, search for all Internet addresses related to ad.yieldmanager.com, right-click on them and press Delete.
  • If you are prompted to confirm the deletion of the cookie file, click Yes.
  • Repeat this step for each ad.yieldmanager cookie you find.
Ad.yieldmanager.com should not be included in your "Trusted Sites List". Check this list and look for Ad.yieldmanager (and related entries). If you find any, then remove them.
  • Launch Internet Explorer and go to Tools > Internet Options and select the Security tab.
  • Click the Trusted sites icon and select the Sites button.
  • A window will open with the Trusted sites...allowing you to add or remove entries.
  • Remove the Ad.yieldmanager entry(s) from this area if it exists.
  • Click Ok, Apply, and Ok again to exit.
To manage your sites, launch Internet Explorer.
  • Go to Tools > Internet Options > Privacy tab.
  • Click the Sites button.
  • Type in ad.yieldmanager.com and click the Block button. Repeat the step and type in yieldmanager.com, yieldmanager.net and any other variation you found when clearing cookies.
  • Doing that will add those domain names to the Managed websites list.
If you need instructions with screenshots for the above steps, or are using Firefox, please refer to this article. Do not download any anti-malware removal tools from that site as they are useless.

I also recommend using SpywareBlaster, a program that restricts the actions of potentially dangerous sites by adding a list of sites and domains associated with known spyware, advertisers and marketers to the browser's "Restricted Sites Zone". Click on Updates, then the Check for updates button. If any are found, download them all and click Enable Protection for All Unprotected items when finished. For more information, see SpywareBlaster System Requirements & Supported Browsers.
