I've had a series of weird redirecting happen on my Macs. Facebook used to randomly takes me to MySpace and now YouTube is taking me to the USA Today Web site. I usually have to wait a couple hours before it fixes itself. Anything I can do here?

If this was a Windows PC, I would say you have a virus. Have you checked your DNS settings to see if you are connected to your ISP's recommended DNS servers?

Try using 8.8.8.8 as your DNS server.

Also try this command in the Terminal

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache
