    Misdirected request issue

    Hello everyone,

    I started facing with this issue 2 days ago. Where while working from home suddenly when visiting the website I kept getting this issue called "Misdirected Request". Whenever I try to refresh the site looks like the issue will go away, but later if I keep browsing it will just continue so I have to press refresh every single time.

    I didn't touch anything it turned to happen by itself. There was no Windows Update to corrupt or mess my computer like we all know sometimes it does.

    So I've noticed after a while that it's not only that particular website but it's just other websites in general.
    Also, my skype is not working, whenever I try to send a message, the message just keeps loading and won't send at all. It looks like something is broken in my files, or registry, I don't really know.

    The funny part is that my desktop computer is connected with wifi card, I tried connecting it through LAN cable and again same issue. I tried calling my ISP and ask them to reset the internet for me, and that didn't fix the issue.

    I have also a laptop connected on the same network, and on the laptop I don't have this issue, same with my phone, no issues whatsoever, I can send messages on skype, I can browse those websites who have that issue on my desktop PC and also I can even sign in on Microsoft forums without an issue, where if I try from my desktop PC it's just the website won't load.

    My last chance is to format my PC, but at the moment I have to deal with this problem as I've already explained, I work from home and it's really important for me not to waste any time. If there's any fix I would gladly appreciate.

    Here is what I've tried so far. And nothing worked
    Reset my router to factory settings, re-configured.
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /renew
    netsh winsock reset
    netsh interface ipv4 reset
    netsh interface ipv6 reset
    Tried reinstalling Chrome
    Tried installing Firefox (same issue)

    None of this worked, (from what I was able to find on the internet).

    I am using only Windows firewall, no antiviruses no nothing.

    Here is pictures of the issue when I try to visit some websites.

    I get this error on some of the ads on the right side of one of the forums I visit.

    This is when I try to sign in on Microsoft or even some of the websites will show me this issue.

    Hi causevd. Welcome to the TenForums @causevd

    A couple more resets you could try

    nbtstat -RR (release and refresh NetBIOS names)
    netsh interface ip delete arpcache (reset Address Resolution Protocol cache)
    netsh advfirewall reset

    Have you just tried a Network Reset.

    Start > Settings > Network and Internet > bottom of right hand side.

    A network reset can require the re-installation or re-configuring of specialized communication software like VPN's. Please consider before running.

    Have you checked your Host file? Should be all commented lines that start with # sign.

    The host file is found at windows\system32\drivers\etc

    Open with notepad

    Have you scan for any advertising malware? Might suggest malwarebytes available at malwarebytes.com

    Scan with MBAM. Misdirects are possible malware infections or you just did not clean all browsing traces, including JavaScripts in Temp files.

    Thanks for the help, but I already gave up. A format fixed the issue.
