No matter what you try to search, it reports the site may harm your computer and won't let you click through:

That sounds like malware - my google has worked fine today, only after a few searches. Did you try scanning yet?


[ EDIT ]
I searched some more and it might be something else (intermittently)- Maybe something with Google's server farms? A google glitch, or Google badware error? how about that? Or did Google get compromised briefly? They may not say, you know. People are twittering about it like crazy.

It's fixed now. No mention on the Google homepage to explain it.

Google probably won't put a mention on its portal page.

Thanks, brewt. That answers that: "What happened? Very simply, human error."
