Complaints about l.yimg.com
When I try to go to Yahoo.com or Yahoo.mail, I see that it is trying to access another site >> l.yimg.com << but end result is I cannot access Yahoo anything. I am a novice at computer virus-spyware-adware detection and don't know what to do.
I have a pfsense firewall with a tunnelbroker IPv6 tunnel going to the ashburn endpoint. In the past few weeks, trying to load any Yahoo page that has l.yimg.com on it, fails to load. No text or images. Browser just sits there spinning its wheel. Refreshing the page doesn't help. Multiple browsers, same issue. Very similar issue to the Facebook problem there a few weeks ago, as noted in the forum here.
How can I get rid of this l.yimg.com thing that keeps popping up and asking me about the certificate. My browser is SO SLOW and it appears to be due to this l.yimg.com thing. Help me to get rid of it please
