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.
