You should try running some anti-spyware software that includes browser hijacker prevention. That might help with your WP getting booted to random websites.

WordPuzzle, Saturday night. You are not imagining...I was sent to a personal web page. first my entry box became really small... it had room for ten letters...then I hit right below it and boom I am on a personal web page. Back...back and back again and all is well. Who knew? No lost data...but is someone spying on my need...I never do well on WordPuzzles. Getting paraniod, Allena

That is very scary Allena. I was booted (again) as well last night but I've never been sent to another web site.

browser hijacker

DEFINITION - A browser hijacker (sometimes called hijackware) is a type of malware program that alters your computer's browser settings so that you are redirected to Web sites that you had no intention of visiting. Most browser hijackers alter default home pages and search pages to those of their customers, who pay for that service because of the traffic it generates. More virulent versions often: add bookmarks for pornographic Web sites to the users' own bookmark collection; generate pornographic pop-up windows faster than the user can click them shut; and redirect users to pornographic sites when they inadvertently mistype a URL or enter a URL without the www. preface. Poorly coded browser hijackers -- which, unsurprisingly, are common -- may also slow your computer down and cause browser crashes.
