I'm a former snap customer, and have had a VDSL connection for 2-3 years or so.

Been having some problems lately with timeouts, webpages not loading, laggy Fritzbox interface, so following 2D tech support have factory reset my 7390.

All I've done is set up wireless network and started general web browsing, I get this message when I try and google search from firefox search bar:


Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen? This page appears when Google automatically detects requests coming from your computer network which appear to be in violation of the Terms of Service. The block will expire shortly after those requests stop. In the meantime, solving the above CAPTCHA will let you continue to use our services. This traffic may have been sent by malicious software, a browser plug-in, or a script that sends automated requests. If you share your network connection, ask your administrator for help — a different computer using the same IP address may be responsible.

I was just trying to search for UFC post fight conference video and I haven't seen this issue ever before.

I had this come up for the first time a couple of days ago - maybe they're just bringing it in? Entered the captcha text and haven't had it again. I'm on Vodafone cable, so it isn't a DSL thing.

Thanks, didn't know what to make of it. I've had to do the captcha text a handful of times so far.

Pretty sure it means what it says it means.  Suggest you get your PC and / or network checked out by someone who knows what they're doing.  Or at the very least, run a reputable antimalware tool on your PC (again, you will need to ask someone who knows)
