Recreate this error by going to google then type:


Then click like PAGE 2 down at the bottom.

You should be presented with this fine message:

We're sorry...

... but we can't process your request right now. A computer virus or spyware application is sending us automated requests, and it appears that your computer or network has been infected.

Yes, this is very strange indeed. Never saw a message like that before.

I can't see how or why they would do this.

My only thoughts are to stop like bots or peoples scripts form doing link pop checks etc etc..

But i think that is really not fair.

How can one gauge each other if one is working in the dark?
