Anytime your Internet browser sends you to unfamiliar Web pages, you can stop the redirecting by troubleshooting the problem. Anything from website advertisements to remote hackers using malware could be at the root of the redirecting problem. The constant redirecting to undesired sites can get quite frustrating.
