Google thinks I have a virus

I’m just about to write a post about GreaseMonkey for Stylish Scripting and I wanted to check if Simon had written about it there before. Best way to find that out? Well, I’d have thought a Google search for inurl: greasemonkey. And when I do that, I get this:

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.

What’s up with that? Other Google searches work, and I consider it highly unlikely that my machine is infected with a virus or spyware.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
