Do you have anti virus and anti spyware ?
I would scan every thing.


Are you sure its google ? May sound like a dumb question but some inexperienced people may make mistakes.

Where did you click? Please explain everything. Did you click on Google logo ? Are you trying to register a Google account? Are you trying to sign on to a Google account?

This can be a normal Google captcha check (it is good) or this can be phishing (it is bad). So please give details.

Google has built in protections to prevent abuse of their systems. For instance, can you imagine what would happen if a bunch of machines made a bunch of repeated requests? It would effectively shut down Google. Apparently either you or someone that previously had the IP (assuming you have a dynamic IP) was somehow trying to abuse their system. I can't ever recall an instance where malware was responsible for this particular problem. Do you know how to refresh your IP address?

I used Google to try and do a search as I always do. When I click on Google logo, instead of the box where you can enter your question, I get a page that states " Sorry your PC is sending random inquires." Also there is a box that allows me to input a code which sates "I'm Human" After which it takes me to a page that pertains to my question.
I don't know how to refresh my IP address? I am using seamonkey 1.1.18, this does not happen when I use Internet Explorer.
I have Kaspersky Anti-Virus 9.0, along with spybot and Malwarebytes, none are showing any type of Virus

If it is not doing it in IE and it is doing it in SeaMonkey, then the issue is with SeaMonkey. Have you recently installed any plug-ins?

The easiest way to get assigned a new IP address is to simply unplug your modem for a few minutes. It can also be done from the command line.

I have not added any new plug ins, that I know of, if I did it was not from anything I wanted to do. As far as using the "command line, that will work with Windows 7?

Yes. You will have to open the Command Window as an admin though.
