<<...I do not think it's a virus issue.>>
I have to "admire"...a person with system problems and bad computing habits...that can make a statement like that
Discounting the fact that browser redirects...can typically be assumed to be a malware issue...and probed as such...just what do you think would cause such on your system?
Is browsing the only aspect that is impacted?
Did you try installing/using a different browser?
Try uninstalling/repairing your current browser?
Try a repair install of your O/S?
Try a clean install of your O/S?
I won't go into the prospect of hardware problems, since I am unaware of any correlation between just browsing...and hardware, with the exception of the networking device. If you suspect faulty hardware, I suggest trying a different networking device.
