Block it with a HOSTS file.

I use hpHosts and MVPS HOSTS files only managed by HostsMan and I use its enclosed proxy HostsServer to speed up Internet browsing:

The hits you get from Norton are nothing more than cookies downloaded to your browser cache every time you visit Yahoo. It's true you can block them with a hosts file, but they are harmless. If you don't want to see all those ad's embedded in the web page at yahoo.com you can also add this to your hosts file: 127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net. The fact that they're only cookies is the reason MBAM doesn't detect them. You can also just delete them with a good temp file cleaner like ccleaner.

So they are cookies, i thought it odd that they only showed up on Yahoo.

I do not have a very broad knowledge base regarding these issues and am learning.

It is much appreciated that you folks take the time to help, Thank you! :)
