The problem has been solved by reseting my router/ADSL2+ modem. I suspect that my router was infected because I had left it with the default username/password, which allowed the virus to infect my router. The infection in the router was causing the redirects. After the modem reset I changed the password and username on my router so this won't happen again.

I suggest anyone with problems similar to mine check if all computers connected to their router/modem are getting the redirects. If so then a router reset might be a good idea.
