Careful with this one-or to anyone with the symptoms!-, if it's what it sounds like, those redirected pages will install all kinds of stuff from
password keyloggers to Bitcoin mining that slaves your computer. Also, that track processes on task manager, do any seem to be over running and or
repeating when you close them? Does it only re direct on one browser? When helping to correct the best I could of someone's computer, I found that
they had the redirection on their main browser, also the same browser that they said downloaded what may have been Adobe Shockwave when they clicked
on an unfamiliar webpage that was brought up in a search-claimed gaming tips site?
From what I read for example a lot of the anti virus software hasn't been updated to this recent malware(March or so of this year?), as it attaches
itself to windows running files, such as iexplorer(not to be confused with the Lexplorer virus).
With that watch for false positives so that you don't corrupt your OS. Safemode while you destroy the files, registry clean too and reboot asap. Try
SuperAntiSpyware and Spybot on Safemode then clean registry with CCleaner then reboot in normal mode. Another tip, disable all running adds ons to
your browser, do a check to see if they are legit, also update by installing and re installing the programs such as Java and Adobe Shockwave. Search
on Bleepingcomputer, etc., and your browser for more help.
Sorry it's a bit scatter brained but hope that helps. Will also update more if I find that computer still has issues.
