I frequently got some dirty words poping up with a link. When i click on the link i often landed to the site called audiltfinder.com(prone site).
I suspect some kind of virus, adware is infected on my pc which is creating the popup and trying to advertise the site.
Can you help me to remedy with this type of virus. Any patch available to remove this kind of adwares.

Regards

No, it's probably not a virus.  Unfortunately, this is a form of advertisement some companies engage in.  Once when I was looking for a job to make some extra money on the side a guy actually wanted me to send messages to random people trying to lure them onto porn sites by pretending to be a girl.  I really wanted to punch him in the face, but unfortunately communications were all via email so I never met him.

Most of the time there are not real people behind these messages though as they are automated.  And this is why I stopped using yahoo instant messenger.  Apart from getting a new, more obscure screen name and making sure you're not in any public listings, all you can do is block users as they try to send you these messages.
