When searching on google I get the following 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.

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

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

I had the same problem several months ago but now it is back. I have run all of my spyware and virus soft ware (trendmicro anti-virus, microsoft, ad-aware, spybot search and destroy, ewido and spycop security scanner) but nothing comes up.

Please read the following quote explaining this message from http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/wlg/6518

In other words, Google won’t let you look beyond the first 10 results if you request it to find URLs that point to PHP resources. This is most likely Google’s response to recent worms that have been using Google to look for vulnerable versions of PHP code.

Hope that helps,

I suspect that explains it. Thanks.
