    I've tried to use Google today and its telling me that my 'client' is illegal and that I have to download a new search bar before I can use Google.

    I downloaded the bar and it still won't work anyone else having Google problems?

    Below is the text from Google

    Nope. Maybe your URL is illegal :wink:
  3. Working OK for me.

  4. Try another search engine instead.

    Look at this link Spam Harvester that indicated that your IP has been compromised by a SPAM harvester.

    Here is an example of a SPAM message supposedly originating for your IP For your urgent attention

    Looks like you might have a trojan type infection. There might be an issue with your AV softtware, your anti spyware of your firewall. You need to check these and try again.

    ( after you update your AV + spywear, take your PC offline and restart in "safe" mode before running an AV and a spyware scan.

    Here is a free spywear detector Lavasoft

    Sadly if Google have pinged your IP address, It may nor be simple to get off their taboo list list.

    PS: don't download the new search bar, unless you want more trouble

    PPS: It look like the SPAM your IP is handling is coming from a mailserver in Sennegal, but that could be anywhere in reality
