    This morning Google has stopped allowing me to continue to sites from its search page. A warning appears under the links saying that "This site may harm your computer." If I conitnue with the link it warns me that Google thinks that the site will harm my PC, and that I can continue if I want to, but there is no link to continue. When I try to click on their links to see why the warning came up I get a "502 Server Error".

    Anyone else experience this?

    Yes, it's doing it to me, too. It doesn't matter what the search is for, the same response comes up.

    Yup, just noticed that myself. They probably just made some change and had a setting wrong. Bet it's back to normal in a minute.

    Same here, but it's only google. Try searching with yahoo or another search engine.

    I just googled a bunch of things and everything worked normally. I use a Mac, maybe it's a PC/Vista/Windows issue.

    Yeah i get the same thing.You have to copy/paste the link to make it work but your antivirus software will detect the threat.The a/v software you use is finding spyware threats so becareful.

    Google is loaded with a massive amount of spyware and tracking cookies. Stay way from it.

    It's working fine now. It must have been some upgrade glitch.

    It's not anything that's installed on your computer that's causing this -- it's definitely a glitch over at Google. Folks have been getting this error from Windows, Mac, and Linux machines (none of which use the same antivirus software) -- but Google appears to be working on it, because I'm not getting the errors as often as I was earlier this morning.

    I figured that it was a dickhead Google-spy issue. I lost faith in them when I tested their shitty Chrome! I hate MSN and Yahoo... any other suggestions?

    MSN and YAHOO the messengers? Try Skype. I find that Skype is better with voice and cam.

    I had the same problem with google too but it looks like it's back to normal now.

    If you want to access the site just delete everything left of the = sign in the address bar.

    Then you will be left with the actual site URL. Press enter to go to the site.
