Google telling me "Unusual traffic coming from my network."

Hey guys,
2 days ago, my computer blue-screened with the "Not less or equal" BSOD. I restarted, and it's fine, but I recently searched Matrix Games' site, and it gives me a warning saying:

"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."

However, this doesn't happen when I search google.com or google.co.uk normally, just on Matrix Games' site. I would think this would indicate a problem at their end, right?

EDIT: Also, just did a search on another website that uses google to search itself, XKCD, and that worked fine.

    Run a virus check either way (MSE is what I recommend) on all computers on your network. But it's probably them that's flubbed up somewhere.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    Did a full scan with ESET yesterday, and found nothing, but doing a malwarebytes scan on my computer too, just to be safe.

    It's doing exactly the same thing for me. I think it's the website.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    Ah, thanks for the clarification man.

    I did a virus scan on both of the computers on the network, it didn't find anything, so I'm gonna go with it being their website.
