Windows 7: Unidentified Website

Unidentified Website

Hello,
There is a website on the history page that says I visited it. I did not visit this page on my own; so it must be attached to Internet Explorer or my local news station or to a firefighter forum. Here is what I see:

s.yimg (s.yimg.com)............When I click on this, I see:
overlayie-20150109.............When I click on that, I get a blank page. There is also the IE icon just before the word "overlayie".

I suspect it may be spyware dispite the icon. I use Ccleaner and Norton Security if that helps.

Does anyone know if this site is legitimate? I have IE 11.

I know s.ytimg.com is part of YouTube. yimg.com (without the t) is part of Yahoo.

But there seem to be a browser hijack also with the name s.yimg.com so you could try a scan with:

Thanks,
I'll download that program and run it. Then I'll log off and then on to see what happens; especially when I go to a local news site or other locations on the web. I just want to be cautious. I believe there is a national news story about China hacking personal information.

You can also use Adwcleaner

Post the scan results for review,

The program did not identify any malware. So I logged on to Internet Explorer and then checked the history link and s.yimg (s.yimg.com) page followed the Yahoo page. So that site must be linked to Yahoo.
So my next step is to contact Yahoo and ask if that website is associated with Yahoo.

Hi,
In Internet explorer just add that site to your restricted sites list and see what happens,
Gear symbol on the top right and Internet options/ Safety
Click on the large Restricted site icon and then on the Sites button,
Clear what ever is listed in the sites box and type in the url of the site in question
Then click on the add button. save and exit.
Close ie and re-open.

If something goes weird you can go back and remove the site as easily as you added it.

I place "s.yimg.com on the restricted list and tested the operation of my computer. Most of everything worked fine except I found that I could not reply to messages until I remove it from the restricted list.

Tookeri is right about "s.yimg.com being part of yahoo. Thanks also to Thrashzone for recommending adware cleaner. I will download that program.

Here is the first report of the log file using adwcleaner as requested: A second report will follow on my next post just to double check and re-affirm that there is no malware.

Hi wow filled you up pretty good with crap,
If you haven't already you can clean all be sure to Uninstall any toolbars the traditional way too
There was a couple that was not selected to remove please remove all findings,
Then after cleaning and uninstalling yahoo crapware download it from a noncrapware source.
use the custom install and weed out some of the unnecessary stuff,

You might be good to reset ie and delete personal settings to get a fresh start,
Cheers.
