We're sorry...

... but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

Done as instructed, no resolution. Only happens in Firefox, Chrome is unaffected. Anyone know what to do?

PS- I have no idea how to send automated queries, or even what this means!!

Step I - I tried the first and easiest way of deleting cookies from my browser.
If you use Firefox – Go to Tools > Options > Private Data > Clear Now > Check Cookies > Clear Private Data Now
And behold, all the errors were gone and the issue was fixed for me.
Step 2 - If that does not fix the issue, then download any popular anti-malware software like Lavasoft Adaware, or Spybot Search and Destroy, MacScan (for Mac), and run a full system scan to find and remove spyware and malware which could be triggering those automated queries to Google.
Step 3 – If you tested and your computer and network are secure, but you continue to get the Google errors, then send feedback to Google and they will investigate your report and fix the issue.

Google redirecting
From the start it was some rogue-antivirus(I forget the name), and I followed instructions from a website to get rid of it, but apparently I did not get rid of everything. When I search on google and click on a link it redirects me to a different page. The only way to get past it retrying a couple...
