TapGoogle, We’re Sorry

In the office today we had a spate of the Google “We’re Sorry” screen. We have no idea why but it was coming up on quite innocent single word searches. I had a search around and found a few pages of explanation but I think they have made a few mistakes with the error page. First of all, it doesn’t look like a Google page—the font for the logo is wrong—all the Google error pages are like this. Secondly, it is directing you to a less than perfect source of anti-virus and anti-spyware software. Although it is C|Net, there are some very dodgy downloads in there. But most of all, there is no clearly explained reason why the message appears. Admittedly it is better than earlier versions when it told you point-blank that you were infected but a list of possible reasons would be useful.

When it comes to the Captcha needed to continue working, I can’t read many of them.
