    Not seen that one before, will look out for it. Does it cause a problem or can you still go to the site?

    You can't go to the site, and I'm affected also.
    If you do a search for "Google" it reports every Google site as malicious.
    I just tried phoning their UK offices, but they're shut! Not sure if I want to spend 11p a minute to phone their headquarters as I haven't figured which email address or form to fill in to contact them online!

    I think google is a bit broken, as it reports every single site in any search as 'this may harm your computer.' whoops! can't be good for business that.

    it looks like it does not matter what you search for all results come back with "this site may harm your computer".

    LOL, just got this message! Switched tab back here While I wait for my page to load and see this thread with 10 reply's!

    Is Alta-vista still going? If it is I might join you CJWhite!

    I noticed no one has suggested using Live Search instead

    I even tried phoning Google in the US (took me a while to figure out international dialling) and managed to get nowhere. Need to find the extension of network operations!
