I am on a Mac (running OSX 10.5.8) and have a recent problem occur where my browser will randomly redirect me to wellaction.com. Or the browser will randomly pop up a new window that opens to search.google-analytics.com. I'm not sure how this happened, I don't recall ever downloading anything suspicious online.

I use Firefox, but the problem also occurs on Safari and I've tried resetting both. Not sure what to do.

Update: I just found out that all my roommates are having the same exact problem. We use wireless internet at our house. Could this be a problem related to the router?
