To start with, clear history and cookies. Reboot (power down fully and if a laptop remove the battery too. Wait a minute or so and restore power and then reboot. See if this simple routine resolves it?

It “may” resolve it and no harm to try it

If problem persists then there a few pest removers to apply on due courses

I sometimes have the same problem. I hope someone can
explain why. It generally only occurs with certain websites and
not others. I don't think it ever happens here on computing.net.
Mostly it happens on commercial sites with lots of ads. Today
I caved in to clicking on one of the slideshow sequences that
was offered on a commercial page, and I was sent to my WiFi
device's webpage instead, over and over and over. Only about
5% of the time was I able to get to the next page in the sequence,
until I finally gave up.

It is strange and a bit scary that the web page of my WiFi device
is substituted for the page I'm trying to get to.

My impression is that it happens when the WiFi connection goes
bad somehow. I have to briefly turn WiFi off and back on, which
often fixes the failure of a page to load, and sometimes fixes this
particular problem. I don't have to restart the modem. Though
maybe I should try that!

Download, install, & run these:

CCleaner-Slim: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/b... Run the Cleaner & Registry scanner; remove everything they find. Got to Tools > Startup & look for suspicious entries. If you find any, disable them. You can always re-enable if you accidentally select a needed app. Reboot before moving on to step 2.

Adwcleaner: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcle...

Malwarebytes free trial: https://www.malwarebytes.com/premium/

And you didn't say which AV program you're running, but it appears it's not doing its job. I recommend Bitdefender Free Edition: https://www.bitdefender.com/solutio...

riider,

I suspect that no AV program can prevent this problem. It doesn't
seem to have anything to do with a virus or worm or the like. It may
have to do with bad web page design or bad Internet connections.
As I implied, when this happens to me, I can get to the linked page
on one try but not the next, and if I keep trying it will work on some
tries but not others, randomly. Success, success, fail, success, fail,
fail, fail, fail, fail, success, fail, fail, fail, give up.

it does sound like malware to me too.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You might try power cycling the router too. Remove mainsinput and wait a minute or two. Then restore power...

Likewise download and burn to a DVD an ISO for a rescue disk. Boot the system with that. It will go online and update itself, then scan the hard drive fully and deal with any pests it finds hidden within windows system files (someofwhich pests cannot be dealt with whilst windows is booted up).

Kaspersky, Bitdefender, AVG, are three such disks, and there are others. Likewise run Trend Housecall - a free online scanner.
