google strings results midway through results I get a warning about running a spyware application

Hi Folks;
i keep forgetting to post this topic...
When I run a string on Google halfway through I get this...

"We're sorry...

... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software.

If you're continually receiving this error, you may be able to resolve the problem by deleting your Google cookie and revisiting Google. For browser-specific instructions, please consult your browser's online support center.

If your entire network is affected, more information is available in the Google Web Search Help Center.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we'll see you again on Google."

Any ideas for m the "google string" gurus out there?
Thank you in advance

You can try this:

1) remove Google cookies; 2) set the number of results to 10 per page, not 100.

Are you using Firefox? If so, you should run Chrome concurrently. When you get the error just plug the string into Chrome and keep going. I know this doesn't answer your question but it's a good work around if don't want to get distracted messing around with cookies and stuff.

There's also a way to achieve the same results as if you had used a whacky string without using any whacky strings at all. Drop me an email before 10:00AM tomorrow and I'll show you how.

You can get that message sometimes if you are using a resume harvesting tool like infogist, or talenthook, etc... in the background. When you are using those sometimes they will get blocked by google, and any computer on your network will also be blocked. Then you have to enter a CAPTCHA image to actually complete a search
