Getting 403 Error When Checking Google Cache
Google sees query as automated request

While I am trying to check the cache snapshot for any of my website, Google is returning the following error

403 Forbidden

-----------------------------------------------------------

We're sorry...
... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we'll see you again on Google.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Does anyone know why is this happening?

sunny_kat - Apparently, you are not alone. I did a site search [google.com] for part of your error message, and others report the problem for various queries. I'll leave it to you to report whether anyone in those threads found a solution.

Here's one that sounds very much like your problem. Were you using the Toolbar?

Checking Google's cache gives error.
Google says it's coming from a spyware program.

Robert
Yes I was using Google Toolbar

Dont know whats is resulting to this error:

a) A general error at Google Server
b) IP Tracking and treating as SPAM

Could only think of A as the reason

Try an alternative browser (with no toolbar installed).
They usually track the ID of the Toolbar and not the IP.
