What is ad.yieldmanager.com?

    What is the pop-up ad.yieldmanager.com? It seems to do nothing.
    If it is a malware or spy bot, why do they advertise itself with a pop-up?

    My pop-up blocker stops it most of the time but the other day I had to turn it off. I get this pop-up like crazy with it off.

    I found these files in my Temp Internet files:
    If I open ako[5] with text Pad, this is in it:

    function rsi_img(p,u,c){if(u.indexOf(location.protocol)==0){var i=new Image(2,3);if(c){i.onload=c;}
    function rsi_simg(p,s,i){if(i<s.length){rsi_img(p,s,function(){rsi_simg(p,s,i+1);});}}
    function rsi_req_pix(l,s){var w=window;if(typeof(w.rsi_imgs)=="undefined"){w.rsi_imgs=[];}
    var a=w.rsi_imgs;var b=w.rsi_simgs;var i;for(i=0;i<l.length;++i){if(s){b[b.length]=l;}else{rsi_img(a,l);}}

    It is just an advertisement site and you will see cookies from it too. It is not malware. Many advertisements use popups. Popup type windows are not necessarily bad just because a popup blocker blocks them.
