It's not your PC that chooses whether or not to redirect to the mobile site, it's the actual sites that detect mobile devices and then redirect them to the mobile site. It sounds like for some reason sites think that your PC is a mobile device. How do you connect to the internet?

Also, I just found an instance where someone was having a similar problem while using a tablet PC. What sort of computer are you using?
