    For the first time today I used Google to search for auto stores near me. (To buy car wash.)
    Instead of it displaying stores, it errored out (Google did), complaining that I was using an automated search.
    My cell phone / camera is broken or I'd have taken a picture. Back at the house .. of course, now it works.

    But I got this:
    Fix the Instant Search Error “We’re sorry… but it appears your computer is sending automated requests.”

    Anyone else seen this? I got it from typing in to the URL line.

    Yes I noticed this yesterday also. I have not tried it since but it was only when using the address bar. If i went to google first it worked fine.

    yes, i've had this too. i think the browser may be injecting something in the search string that annoys google's servers. frustrating.
