Default Google IP Banned Me. HELP

I've been downloading albums (mostly zip files) from various music blogs. I've been doing this a lot for the past few years. Also I'm using a mac.

So I'm doing my thing and all of a sudden this pops up when I try to click on links through google blog search:

"We're sorry...

... but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

See Google Help for more information."

WTF are automated queries?

Anyway I saw 'google help' downloaded and ran the software they recommended "macscan". Ran it, and it did it's thing and I still can't use google.

Please help me!!!

Don't know what browser you use, but if you just do like a Yahoo search like "how to delete cookies in _______" you should find out how pretty easily.
I did that and it still didn't fix the problem!

Google IP banned you? Trojans usually send automated queries to various websites, so you might want to run your virus programs, or roll back to a previous date.

Trojans are made to annoy. You probably have one that's made to send hundreds or thousands of queries to Google every minute. Do you have a control panel that displays the running programs on your Mac? Like a task manager on Windows?

As said check for Malware.

Download this program on your computer, it detects all malware on your computer.
http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Scan for Viruses, Spyware and Especially Malware if you've ever heard of that. I'm positive those are the reasons why you are getting these errors. Oh and rep me. Lol, If you want to.

Anyways, It seems like your computer is the problem not the site nothing else. Just your computer. It could be that your user on that site is sending viruses/trojans/spyware/malware to everybody.

To be completely honest, I don't know much about Mac computers. Your best bet is to find a forum dedicated to Mac problems. Sorry.

I would run Macscan while disconnected from the internet. Or maybe set it to run before your system starts.

No. Should I try and find one?

I've had Malware in the past and so did my Friend. His computer got completely destroyed and he had to re-format his computer, lost literally everything he had on there. It was a serious malware, he also had Viruses as well.

MY computer was also destroyed, but I don't think Malware was the reason though. But Malware is just as serious as Viruses, some are hard to erase though.

Once you scan for Malware. Do it again, on Safe mode, because you don't want any on your computer at all. Not sure if there is a safe mode on Macs though.

Can people get malware on Macs? I was reading that Malware is only written for Windows/PCs?
