Google issue?

I am getting this error from work. I can search from Google News and my Google Calender works. Any ideas?

Have you seen this thread http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread.php?t=465415 eleswhere on this forum. Perhaps Google is being monitored. Spyware monitoring, whether government or otherwise could trigger the sort of messages you're seeing.

Hang on, just going to look over my shoulder before posting this, you never know who's watching
