Google - suspicious??

I'm getting an alert from my Zone Alarm security telling me that the Google search page is "suspicious". This takes the form of a yellow bar across the top of the page. "Do not enter unless you trust this site". Does ZA know something I don't?

Having similar problems Google is trying to connect through proxy server which I have not set up and failing - why?
Sorry doesn't help but may help generate some ideas.

No i don't think it does, basically zone will ask you quite normal questions, even software that you use all the time. I don't use zone anymore but from memory there is a little box there to remember the answer you give it & put an ok tick for Google search.

I use no forewall at all except what comes with windows & the router i use.

I think you're right, Timbo. I ticked the box and it has all gone back to normal. I was just curious as to why it suddenly started. Don't know about your problem, Snrub, like you I had thought the whole issue might have generated more ideas!
