Default What's up with Google??

No matter what search term I type, there's a warning that says "This site may harm your computer" alongwith the results ?!?!

Here's a screenshot of the results when I searched for "team bhp".

Even I am getting the same warning.
However, it opens the site normally if i directly type the URL.

Now, say, why does it say so! If that was so, all my machine would have gone bonkers a long time back!

Same thing here, I think google has got some weird virus somewhere. Right now happening only with Firefox, browsing using IE is not an issue.

Surprisingly, I am not getting that warning. Everything on the search results page seems normal to me. My browser is IE Ver 6.0.2900.2180
