Which begs the question

You have a remote connection to another KNOWN Computer, i do Hope so.
Unusuall tho, certificates are issued to specific websites not to a remote computer.
did a quick web check on btrll some interesting results.

Thanks for the feedback Torchwood. I read up on btrll. Fascinating and problematic. I can easily understand the certificate pop-up, but I cannot connect that to runaway memory. My friend's computer in the next room (I am wifi-ed to hers, she is wired directly into the router) does not get either btrll or the runaway memory.

Clearly Yahoo has to own up to the problem and fix that part of it. May be they are trying to dump it to Verizon who bought yahoo email.

The problem occurred because of a certificate that Norton could not verify. The problem only happened for me on my Yahoo email page. Yahoo would not confirm that is their problem. I called Norton, my anti-virus software. The verified that the popup msg was from Norton, but that Norton was performing correctly.. Since we cannot fix the certificate, we need to do the next best thing. That is to block the ad. The popup blockers built within browsers are not sufficient. So installed a free ad blocked for my browser. The ad blockers are free to download and use. This completely solved the problem. The triggering of the popup kept using more memory usage, therefore the runaway memory.

Thanks for all your help.

On firefox under tools under Add-ons under extensions you can install AdBlock 3.41 (https:/getadblock.com/) or AdBlock Plus 2.91 (https://adblockplus.org/en/)

On IE11 under tools under Manage Add-ons under Tools and Extensions you can install AdBlock Plus for Internet Explorer 11 Helper Object Ver. 1.6.0.0 from Eyeo GmbH

Yes well I must try again but later as I have gone to IE on one machine Edge on my 10 laptop and both accept Ad Blocker plus no probs so I don't think it is Kaspersky as I was beginning to think maybe it was it but no so I am just going to use IE and Edge on the machines I use the most.
