IE 7 searching for items I don't want
For serveral months my IE 7 will look for a specific address that I do not
want. It does this after I have initiated a search for a product or
information. It will find that spot and then go immediately to the webpage
that says it can't find the web address. I have not asked to search or go to
this address and have never typed it in. I have tried to do a search with
regedit for it but that has not helped. If anyone can tell how to stop this
I would appreciate it.


I am running IE 7 on XP media center SP3 on an emachine running a Pentium D
processor with a Nvidia 7300 gs video card.

The web address it is looking for is
"http://ad.yieldmanager.com/st%3Fad_type". Can anyone tell me how to fix
this problem?

Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.

When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
(http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use (in
conjunction with some other utilities). HijackThis will NOT fix anything on
its own, but it will help you to both identify and remove any
hijackware/spyware with assistance from an expert. **Post your log to
http://spywarehammer.com/simplemachi...php?board=10.0,
http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=22,
http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30, or another appropriate forum for review
by an expert in such matters, not here.**

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA or Geek Squad) computer repair shop.
