While trying to send bitcoin I keep putting the correct address in the 'pay to' section but it keeps sending the bitcoins to the wrong address. While clicking the preview section on electrum the 'output' says a different address, is this why it isn't sending to the right address?
You have a malware version of electrum. Did you update it recently because you were prompted to do so by in app popups? Check your browser history for the download URL. electrum.org or download.electrum.org are the only legit places to get electrum.
