Re: get user id.js from ad.yieldmanager.com

I have had the same issue, but after looking for a solution on the Web have now resolved.

 

1) Removed all cookies via  Internet Explorer / Tools / Delete Cookies.

 

I think there are ways of deleting specific cookies if required, but I took the option of deleting all.

 

2) Blocked the web site

 

Internet Explorer / Tools / Internet Options / Privacy / Sites

 

The enter "yieldmanager.com" and Block.

 

Hope this helps.
