There are other things that need your attention.

Your plugin list shows an old Shockwave Flash 10.0 r32 plugin version that you should remove and update.

Looks that the page has been hacked and that some code has been entered in an conditional block meant for IE and that is done in a way that modern browsers do not allow (they shift that content to the body tag and display it).

You can see this in the page source and if you inspect that code block in the inspector via the right-click context menu.

Sounds like Malware on your PC.

Install, update, and run these programs in this order. They are listed in order of efficacy.
(Not all programs detect the same Malware, so you may need to run them all to solve your problem.)
These programs are all free for personal use, but some have limited functionality in the "free mode" - but those are features you really don't need to find and remove the problem that you have.
Note: If your Malware infection is bad enough and you are mis-directed to URL's other than what is posted, you may have to use a different PC to download these programs and use a USB stick to transfer them to the afflicted PC.

Try to boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test to see if that helps to run the malware scanners.

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.
