Hmmm... Google must've not liked your parents' computer... Try switching from Microsoft to a Mac or Linux... like part of Google's internal OS usage policy :-D

So it's happening with all sites, not just Stuff?  

Have you tried clearing cookies and making sure the Proxy settings are set to "Automatically detect settings"?

A quick google finds the lots of the same problem, the majority of which seem to be caused by malware.

Do a sweep - Spybot or Malwarebytes - and reset the proxy, and see how ya go.  Good luck ...
