Yes this is a Malware infection, or a virus masquerading as a legitimate antivirus software, you can download Malware Bytes Anti-Malware from www.malwarebytes.org and attempt to clean it yourself but it may need to be cleaned by a professional depending on how aggresive the infection is.

The page keeps crashing and closing


First check other sites in your browser. Do they work? Can you surf the internet?
Perhaps you need to update your web browser. I check this out by trying problem pages using a different browser. For instance, if you normally surf using Internet Explorer, try using Firefox. At least this will tell you where to start looking. Perhaps your security settings are too high. One thing I would check for is malware. Scan for viruses and other bad stuff.

I start the internet and I get redirected


There is a malicious software application called the Google redirect virus. If your system is affected with this resident virus, you will be redirected most of the time. Each time you click on a favorite to reach a website, you get IE8 redirect problems - due to the Google redirect virus. I recommend a scan to know if your IE8 redirect problem is attributed to the Google redirect virus.
Not all antivirus applications can detect it. You may use Microsoft Security Essentials for regular use (it takes care of several specific types of spyware) or if you wish to go for a one time scan, you can use MS AV online scan. Once you have completed the scan and have found and removed the virus, I recommend you use the best maintenance software for Windows to avoid the problems in future.
IMPORTANT: Please clean your computer for temporary Internet files and cookies prior to running the online AV scan as they may interfere with the scan process.

If you can browse normally, it means the problem is some add-on. Start IE8 normally and disable all add-ons (Tools → Manage Add-ons). Enable them one by one to isolate the add-on that's creating the problem. You can disable or remove that add-on to prevent future IE redirects.
If you still get redirect problems, I recommend you uninstall the Internet Explorer 8 and download the "Internet Explorer Optimized for Google". This optimized version gives fewer troubles that include eliminating most IE8 redirect problems too.
