Not hacked for VirusTotal. http://www.urlvoid.com/scan/virustotal.com/

At this writing on the scan above shows legit website but it seems that your capture shows otherwise in term of the layout.

When using it (https://www.virustotal.com/index.html#!/home) in the browser, it should be redirected to https://www.virustotal.com/#!/home, but it seems that your captures did not have that. Try using the redirected URL and also try other browser, clean away your cache. Hope it is not the ISP issue

For assurance, you can run adwCleaner and Junkware removal kit on your machine.

It looks perfectly normal to me, post a screenshot of what you see just in case that is the PC where you are looking from that has some internal redirect to some other page.

But so far so good, it's as good as always!

Yes your URL of VirusTotal seems weird, as it's not the official one.

Have a look at your hosts file c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts (in case it is a windows machine) to see if there are some redirects there.

Try to open the virustotal URL from other navigators, have you tried from IE, Edge, FireFox & Chrome to see if any of them is affected by a hijacker or search bar and others not?

Try to run a few malware cleaners like btan suggested, you can also try with Malwarebytes, MS own Malicious Software Removal Tool, Spybot Search & Destroy, etc.

Have to check the browser for any extension so as to sieve out any potential ones intercepting or causing those issue mention. Like
-Adware (ads software)
-PUP/LPI (Potentially Undesirable Program)
-Hijacker (Hijack of the browser's homepage)
- toolbars

 Try running with MalwareByte AntiMalware, then run HitmanPro.Alert, also later check with AdwCleaner and Junkware Removal Toolkit

I am also thinking on doing network packet capture using wireshark or fiddler / Burp Suite but maybe can be overkill if the above did not reveal anything. It is just to make sure the traffic going out is expected.  based on the URL in the HTTP get packet  Did a quick dns check also did not show the site is malicious
