I do a search from google chrome and i'm starting to get the following message from google "Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot."  It happens on all my computers on the LAN.  But the captcha only starts happening after i search the following phrase "asp.net".  So is this a network infection or and issue with google search.   There is not problem with searching on Edge with Bing. Numerous different virus scans have yielded nothing.  thanks for the help

I've seen that captcha thing when using the Firefox Private Window which doesn't allow websites to install or use cookies installed in a non-Private Window.

 

Could that be the cause of what you are seeing?  It could be a corrupt cookie or a blocked cookie, too.

 

Run CCleaner per instructions below and it will remove all cookies in the major browsers. When you visit a site again...a new cookie(s) will be created.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Thanks Buddy!  I use ccleaner regularly and just cleaned my browser and i have no captcha issue now.  But if i search "asp.net" the captcha will reappear. On any computer on my LAN the same thing happens. Very interesting! My router is locked down and up to date. Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes, Windows defender, AdwCleaner, Rkill, JRT, TDSS, RogueKiller and Virus total search with process Explorer have all yielded negative results for any infection on my laptop or my desktop. Could it be that Google's captcha is triggered by a specific phrase you search ??? That doesn't make sense to me but maybe

I checked that search term before my first post using asp.net and that didn't happen to me. If you use that site often I suggest you make a bookmark for it

and use that instead of using Google search.

 

There is no reason to think this is a malware  issue. Whatever Google relies on when doing that particular search and is not getting to confirm you as a human is

a bit of a mystery since it only happens for that one search term.
