    It usually means that something gets you confused, side tracked, mislead.

    Those math questions on my last quiz totally threw me off. = they confused me.

    The cab driver's directions threw us off completely and as a result we got to Jennie's home really late. = those directions were very confusing.

    The murderer kept on changing his location to throw the police off his track. = he kept on misleading them.
