I use IE8 and never had any problems with Google yesterday.Maybe a qhick run of your security programs may help.But if you cannot get McAfee Site Advisor to work you can always try WOT.Just does the same and puts a little circle on your taskbar which changes colour.
I have used WOT before and it does the job, so I will go back to it again later, but at the moment,I am using a getaround by having my 'homepage' as Google News, then using Google search from the 'homepage'.
Strange way of doing it, but it works.
I just find it strange that MSA was OK one day then suddenly did not work, but hey ho, as my workaround does the job, it is OK by me. For the time being.
Just realised, the other day, I had to download QuickTime Plug-in for Firefox. So will disable later and try again without. Maybe QT is the culprit.
