Various browser issues, becoming progressively worse

I have been experiencing various browser and computer issues over the past month.
I have Kaspersky Antivirus, which requires and update almost daily (is this normal?). It does not detect anything following a scan, but it indicates 21 "threats" have been found.
Twice I have had to do a system restore to a date 30 days prior in order to start my computer because of a non-descript error upon startup.
My battery is draining at ~3x the speed that it used to. The battery draining began about 2 months ago. I have not changed any power saving settings or anything like that - those settings to my knowledge remain the same as I set them when I first bought my laptop.
Let me start by saying that I almost always use Firefox, and avoid Explorer.
Now both Firefox and Explorer take about 5 minutes to start up.
Firefox prompts me to update it every single time I start it from a closed state, and it "cannot complete update".
Recently, in the past 3 days, some websites do not display properly. The frames and fonts are off, and some pictures display as text. Periodically on some pages, there is jibberish in place of what would be a link.
Sometimes, pages will redirect to a "this website is not registered" or "this adress is available for purchase" page when I know the site exists.

I have attached the OTL text files and the Kaspersky scan report tool.

Please help!
