Sorry if this is a dup. I don't think it posted the first time I tried.
When I click on Search This Forum, enter anything in the search box, and click Search, I get:
... but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.
- When Google detects that a computer on your network may be sending automated traffic to Google we may show the following message: "Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network." Automated queries are against our Terms of Service.
- The error page most likely displays a CAPTCHA (a squiggly word with a box below it). To continue using Google, type the squiggly word into the box -- it's how we know you're a human, not a robot.
If you don't see a CAPTCHA image or if you continue to encounter the CAPTCHA over and over, try these steps in order:
- Check for malware on your computer.
Malicious software, sometimes bundled with other free downloads without your knowledge, can trigger Google to show this message. We've suggested some well-known programs below that can detect and remove such applications. Please remember that we have no connection with these companies and can't guarantee their effectiveness.
- If these programs don't resolve the problem, you might want to try an advanced troubleshooting program such as HijackThis.
- Contact your network administrator.
If you tried the steps above and haven't resolved the issue, it's very likely that a user or a computer in your network is sending automated traffic to Google. Your network administrator may be able to locate and shut down the source of the automated traffic; feel free to refer them to this page. Sending automated queries of any sort to Google is against our Terms of Service. This includes, among other things, the following activities:
- Using any software that sends queries to Google to determine how a website or webpage ranks on Google for various queries
- 'Meta-searching' Google
- Performing 'offline' searches on Google
Once the automated traffic has stopped, the ban on your IP address should be automatically lifted.
- If the problem persists, your network administrator should contact us.
If your network continues to experience this message in error, please send us additional information.

lol. 1y5m later and 400+ views and no response. Gotta love it.
I have the same problem with my note II and I see Galaxy S 3 users having the same problem. What I did to solve it was create a new APn and use the pta APN instead of the default 'phone' APN my phone came with. Strange. But after a reboot I was able to search again.
