    What the title says. It began out of the blue. I haven't installed anything recently. And it's really really annoying, since I can't watch anything without getting immediately redirected.

    Run Malwarebytes, virus scan, etc.

    Clear your browser cache.
    Mindweaver says thanks.

    hostmonster is bluehost and they are an evil hosting company so I wouldn't put it past them to pull this crap.

    wait, do you mean that you run a website through hostmonster and that website has embedded youtube links that are being redirected?

    No, I don't run any website. Every time I go to youtube.com and click on any link to any video, it loads that page for about half a second, and then redirects me to this page: http://mdsad.com/yt.html?id=W0wqyheCGOI

    They all have different letter/number combinations, but the page looks the same always.

    run with a chrome/firefox extension called noscript might help with the redirects.

    It could also prevent pages from loading up correctly.

    I tried manually blocking it through adblock. Seems to be working.

    usually means your ISP is having DNS issues.
