Google keeps blocking my search results! mtlakio 10/1/09 1:41 AM
So I use the Google search for pretty much any query. Tonight I get the message "

We're sorry...

... but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now."


I ran an antivirus and every computer on my network is protected... I have no idea what's going on. The only thing that wasa wierd is that my computer freaked out (using Firefox) when I logged out of my gmail account. It seemed to try and reconnect a dozen times. What's up?

Hi,

Three things you can try:
1. Clear your cookies and browser's cache as instructed in this document: http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050
In most cases this alone will solve the issues.

2. Turn off every add-on you have added to your browser and see if this solves the issue.

3. Maybe you got some sort of malware infection. Please see this help entry for further details and information about how to debug further: http://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=8091 . I know you said you have checked, but no antivirus is bulletproof so you may want to check with another one as well.

4. Worse case scenario: Call your ISP and ask them to change your IP address.

Please report back! Cheers
