Is there a way to get rid of http://ad.yieldmanager.com/st%3Fad_type? We have this on several computers and we can go to a website only to have it hijacked by yieldmanager.com.

I'd be curious if some of the Symantec employees would want to comment why SEP11 can't seem to remove or at least block the popups from this yieldmanager ad-ware.  It seems to be a widespread problem. On a separate note, I have several cases where SEPs NTP will block traffic from known spyware software (Alexa web traffic, and httpmyway confg) but the AV componet doesn't detect it.  

It's really hard to defend SEP to desktop techs when some freeware off the net cleans the machine as SEP11 sits there with a green icon and latest defs....
