We're sorry...
... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we'll see you again on Google


That is 4th time today. Trying to look things as simple as stock quote for BUD.

A tool that's lost its purpose makes a great toy.

Doesn't look Meaningless to me.

Interesting. Check your index finger. Is it firmly planted on the F5 key?

Someone posted this on the Wiki
The suggestion that the user's computer may be infected is often incorrect. The screen was first reported in 2005 and was a response to the heavy use of Google by Search Engine Optimisation companies to check on ranks of sites they were optimising. The message may also be triggered by high volumes of different searches from a single IP address. The block is removed after a day

Looks like I exhausted my quota of searches

But I am not the only one

Not that I needed another reason to avoid using Google (other than indirectly).
