It's popping up a lot lately, especially when I search for something. It drives me insane. It stops me from getting my results, and slows me down. Then I get the captcha. But the captcha doesn't work lots of times, and just sent me to the same previous window.
Why my computer suddenly think I am sending searches from a robot, computer program, automated service, or search scraper??
It happens at home and work computer.
It's pretty new, although I didn't changed anything in my computer settings. I didn't install anything new.
It says to see google for more info, but it doesn't explain anything. I want to get rid of it!
Help!!!

See Google Help for more information.
PS. Yes, I googled it already. Tried to find a solution...
I cleaned my computer, deleted cookies, history etc. I ran antivirus program ( have a good live protection anyway), and malware program. No problem detected.
I followed all those steps too:

I would probably use Fiddler web debugger to see if something was going on. Another way around would be to use a proxy server, in case your ISP isn't shooting down spambots.

Yeah... but is that a long term solution?
And how was that problem created in the first place?

How to use the Fiddler debugger?

Fiddler will do a capture of all your web traffic for you to look at. You look to see if there is something not Kosher. Describing how to use it is beyond the scope of forum posts. Note that I said that is how I would attack the problem first. That isn't a blanket recommendation for everyone.

If you ISP is the problem, then yeah, a proxy server or outside address might be a long term solution. As to why and how the problem came about, you got me by the sneakers. There are too many possibilities.

OK, I found the download and the explanation how this product works. I will try and see if it helps.
Thank you very much for this recommendation!
