My Trend Micro I.S. always deletes yieldmaster cookies as medium risk threats but they always keep coming back. A file search produced two content entries related with flashplayer. Should these be removed? If so, what is the procedure.

Yieldmaster is a tracking cookie, kind of like webtrends, and it's annoying.    If you want to remove it, follow the manual removal instructions here: http://www.spywareremove.com/removeadyieldmanagercom.html

Also, it wouldn't hurt to use malwarebytes and run a full scan afterward.
