One extra thing. My wife accidentally got our PC infected by an irritating PUP, which made ever link or click, take us to a porn site. And all she did was download an image off Google images. I kept cleaning the virus off & it kept returning.
Then I used CCleaner & cleared the PC of cashe & cookies etc & the virus magically stopped reappearing.
Not running as PC with Administrator rights is also a good idea, that I picked up from that. As nothing can now load without me giving my permission.

The entire point of Google is it searches sites for keywords for the secret current SEO process - it looks at images and their names too. People far cleverer than us can then optimise almost any site to appear in the Google rankings when they shouldn't. Sometimes hundreds of fake 'genuine' pages to keep Google happy and get the results then a swift redirect to somewhere dodgy, from somewhere OK. NONE of this activity is a virus, they don't infect your computer but they simply make your browser redirect you. Firefox is well known for having very useful plugins to make the internet easier to use, but is too happy installing them, and these are often why two computers see web pages differently - one with active extensions and site specific hacks re-routes you, believing it's helping, and one won't. Firefox even has a special section for experimental features in the develop menu. An easy way to get your system to do weird things. If you continually search for the same thing - I'd guess Google has noticed and changes the search parameters for you - and opens you up to wider sources. I'd also bet that it monitors which of your destinations following a search are followed, so removing ones you declined.

Far above my head - but some of the redirects are scary. Oddly, for me Google Chrome actually seems better, but for ease of use, Firefox works for me.
