    FREAKY... I just got this message on my way to my Google Personal Page [​IMG]
    It seems to me that it is an issue on Google's end. After a little digging http://www.erniesthings.com/?p=75 (image provider) I took my search results pref from 100 to 30 and all seems to be fine. Anyone else every get this message? The weird thing is I get it after installing Real Player. Coincidence? Thoughts?

    when you say you just got this, how far after 1pm eastern do you mean?

    the first part of the da vinci code game ended today. their servers have been getting smashed, but it should lighten up. i know that generally this will happen only when your ip address tries to load the site too many times in a row without doing anything, which leads to bandwidth consumption.

    anyway, they aren't saying you have a virus/spyware, just that your actions are consistant with someone that has the v/s problem. if you weren't doing that, it may have been that the server just got confused after the beating it has been taking.
