I have been trying to get rid of this thing for weeks now with no luck, and there's not much out there in blogs that help either. Initially, it happened most with Yahoo. I'll click on a link for a story or a search result, and then almost immeaditly it will redirect me to a Dell/Google page http://www.google.com/hws/dell-usuk/afe?hl...om/st%3Fad_type. It states "Sorry, we couldn't find [url="http://ad.yieldmanager.com/st%3Fad_type...""]http://ad.yieldmanager.com/st%3Fad_type..."[/url] Then, after a while of ignoring it it started to occur whenever I was clicking on any link, randomly. I have run CCleaner, Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster(I know it just immunizes), AVG Anti-Virus along with the spyware and anti-virus that come with my Verizon Security Suite. Made my computer pretty clean, and I haven't had any other issues with cpu performance. I've never dared mess with the registry as I'm only a novice as a computer user and am at the mercy of the programs I use I try to research programs a lot before I'll install them). Inclosed is the HJT file that I ran after running all the other programs.

[*]Enter your e-mail address and click send
[*]Select either Home User or Company
[*]Click the big Scan Now button
[*]If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
[*]It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan
(Note: It may take a couple of minutes, so be patient)
[*]When download is complete, click on Local Disks to start the scan
[*]When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.

Please post the contents of Panda scan



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

Download ATF (Atribune Temp File) Cleaner© by Atribune DO NOT run it yet.

Download and install AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 (formerly Ewido)
This is a 30 day trial of the program

AVG Anti-Spyware is designed to be used to both scan for and remove malicious files and also to run in real-time alongside, but not replace, your existing anti-virus program to give an added layer of protection.
Both the Resident Shield and Automatic Updates will only be available for the thirty day trial period, after that AVG Anti-Spyware will revert to a stand-alone scanner which you can keep and manually update for free and use in a similar way to Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot S&D etc.


1. After download, double click on the file to launch the install process.
2. Choose a language, click "OK" and then click "Next".
3. Read the "License Agreement" and click "I Agree".
4. Accept the default installation path: C:\Program Files\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 and click "Next", then click "Install".
5. After setup completes, click "Finish" to start the program automatically or launch ewido by double-clicking its icon on your desktop or in the system tray.
6. The main "Status" menu will appear. You can select "Change state" to inactivate 'Resident Sheild' and 'Automatic Updates'. If you choose to do this, then right click on AVG antispyware in the system tray and uncheck "Start with Windows".
7. Select the "Update" button and click "Start update".
If you are having problems with the updater, manually update with the AVG Antispyware Full database installer from here.
8. Exit AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 when done - DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "SAFE MODE" using the F8 method so Windows will start with minimal drivers and running processes.
To do this restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup [but before the Windows icon appears] press the F8 key repeatedly.
A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

1.) Double-click the small BLUE Garbage Can ATF-Cleaner.exe file to run the program.
2.) At the top, under Main choose: Select All
3.) Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use the Firefox browser:
1.) At the top, click Firefox and choose: Select All
2.) Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click NO at the prompt.

If you use the Opera browser:
1.) At the top, click Opera and choose: Select All
2.) Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click NO at the prompt.


Scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 as follows:

1. Launch AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5, click on the "Scanner" button and choose the "Settings" tab.

Under "How to act?", click on "Recommended actions" and choose "Quarantine" to set default action for detected malware.

Under "How to Scan?" check all (default).

Under "Possibly unwanted software" check all (default).

Under "What to Scan?" make sure "Scan every file" is selected (default).

Under "Reports" select "Automatically generate report after every scan" and UNcheck "Only if threats were found".

2. Click the "Scan" tab to return to scanning options.
3. Click "Complete System Scan" to start.

4. IMPORTANT : Don't click on the "Save Scan Report" button before you did hit the "Apply all Actions" button.

Make sure that Set all elements to: shows Quarantine
(1)
, if not click on the link and choose Quarantine from the popup menu.
(2) At the bottom of the window click on the Apply all Actions button.
(3) When done, click the Save Scan Report button.
(4) Click the Save Report as button.
Click on the most recent scan you just performed and select "Save report as" - the default file name will be in date/time format as follows: Report-Scan-20060620-142816.txt.
Save to your desktop.
A copy of each report will also be saved in C:\Program Files\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5\Reports\
Right-click the AVG Anti-Spyware Tray Icon and select Exit. Confirm by clicking Yes.

Reboot to Normal Mode.

When done, submit the Panda Scan log, the [b]AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5
log and a fresh Hijackthis log.

Hi, and thank you for helping me with this problem.

I believe I did everything you said. I Went to Panda and scanned my local disk and here
are the results from that.


Panda Active Scan Results


Incident Status Location

Spyware:Cookie/Atlas DMT Not disinfected
C:\Documents and Settings\Amanda\Cookies\amanda@atdmt[2].txt
Spyware:Cookie/Cgi-bin Not disinfected

Spyware:Cookie/Overture Not disinfected

Spyware:Cookie/Go Not disinfected

As Panda would not delete these files for me, I manually deleted them. I then downloaded ATF Cleaner, but did not use it immediately as instructed. I then downloaded AVG Anti-Spyware and installed it as instructed. (I did have to get the full database from the site as the integrated updater would not work). I then went to safe mode and followed your instructions with using ATF Cleaner and AVG Anti Spyware. I then rebooted my computer and did another HJT Scan. Here are the AVG Anti-Spyware and HJT results.

I would like to note that upon start up after the reboot from safe mode my computer took about 3x as long to start up and load windows as it usually does. I don't know if this is normal after rebooting from safe mood, or if it would have to do with quarantining the items from the AVG Anti-Spyware Scan. Thanks again!

Hi Sean F,

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.

Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of  Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u1.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u1".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language  jre-6-windows-i586.exe and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
    Examples of older versions in Add or Remove Programs:
    Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2
    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0
    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u1-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.
I am not seeing any malware in your log, but we can remove some items to inprove startup time.

Download CCleaner and install it. (default location is best). Do not run it yet!

CCleaner Tutorial


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

In Normal Mode, select the following with HijackThis.
With all windows (including this one!) closed (close browser/explorer windows), please select "fix."

These are optional fixes. The following are not necessarily spyware/malware, but I suggest you place a check mark next to the following entries, as these programs may be taking up system resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HotKeysCmds] C:\WINDOWS\system32\hkcmd.exe
(Description: Intel hotkey applet. Unnecessary. Removing this will free up a small amount of system resources.)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] \"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe\" -osboot
(Description: RealPlayer scheduler. Completely unnecessary. Removing this entry will free up a small amount of system resources.)

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

*NOTE* CCleaner deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups.

Let's empty the temp files:

Run CCleaner.

CAUTION: Please do NOT use the Issues button. This is a built-in registry cleaner. If you don’t know how to use it, you may cause irreparable damage to your system.

1. Starting with v1.27.260, CCleaner installs the Yahoo Toolbar as an option which IS checkmarked by default during the installation.
IF you do NOT want it, REMOVE the checkmark when provided with the option OR download the toolbarfree Basic version instead of the Standard Build.


2. Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"

3. Then select the items you wish to clean up.

In the Windows Tab:
• Clean all entries in the "Internet Explorer" section except Cookies.
• Clean all the entries in the "Windows Explorer" section.
• Clean all entries in the "System" section.
• Clean all entries in the "Advanced" section.
• Clean any others that you choose.

In the Applications Tab:
• Clean all except cookies in the Firefox/Mozilla section if you use it.
• Clean all in the Opera section if you use it.
• Clean Sun Java in the Internet Section.
• Clean any others that you choose.

4. Click the "Run Cleaner" button.
5. A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.
6. Click "OK" and it will scan and clean your system.
7. Click "exit" when done.

If it asks you to reboot at the end, click NO.

CCleaner should be run with the above settings for each User Account!

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


Finally, reboot your computer, post a new Hijackthis log, and tell me how your computer is running.
If I've saved you time & money,
please make a donation so I can keep helping people just like you! You can donate using a credit card and PayPal. Thank you!

The load time for windows is ok, the same as it was before, with the exception that Verizon Security Suite is taking longer to load. I also installed IE 7 as I was running 6 before. Haven't had the http://ad.yieldmanager.com/st%3fad_type thing come up again, so hopefully it's all and well now. Any final advice before this is archived? If not, thanks for the help. :thumbsup:

Hi Sean F,

Your log looks clean! :thumbsup: Good job on the cleanup!


Let's clean your System Restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows.
The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files.
This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)

1. Turn off System Restore.

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.

Thanks again for everything. I cleaned the system restore as you suggested. I also read all the articles you suggested. I found the one that suggested pcpitstop.com to be most interesting, as it did a complete scan and gave info on how to make safe appropriate changes to help optimize my pc. Thanks again :thumbsup: :flowers: :huh:
