Whenever I try to open a new site, say with google, I am re-directed to a site I have never visited. These are usually advertisements although I have a blocker. As of now, I have to copy and paste everything.

Chosen solution

Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs. You need to use all programs because each detects different malware.
