Browser/website redirects me to a suspicious website

Issue:

While browsing the internet I got redirected a suspicious website. I have F-secure protection but it can't find viruses. 

Resolution:

This is most likely not a virus, but an adware that is in your browser.

First you should check if there is anything new on your browsers toolbar, or new unknown extensions/add-ons.

Uninstall extension on Chrome
Uninstall extension on Mozilla Firefox
Uninstall extension on Internet Explorer
Uninstall extension on Microsoft Edge

You should also try clearing the history and browser cache.

If this does not help, try resetting the whole browser.
