Redirect Notice on ALL destination URL's

Starting today, I got the following problem with my client accounts:
In the ads summary page listing all the ads in an ad group / campaign, I click on an ad and instead of getting on the corresponding landing page, I get to see a Redirect Notice page from Google with 2 lines of text:

The previous page is sending you to http://www.example.com
'If you do not want to visit that page, you can return to the previous page'.

I cannot check my ads anymore!
If you click on the first link, you get to the right page and the second link is not functional Ė but this is not the point.

This is ridiculous!

1. This is happening with all my ads in all my client accounts in MCC.
2. This is not a browser issue. It happens in IE, Firefox and Google Chrome.

I called Google and they said they donít know anything about this.

Anybody else having this problem?

you may have some filtering program in place that is doing this (i don't see it).

here's an example case:

I donít have any filtering program.
This suddenly started this morning and it is only happening in the Adwords interface; nowhere else.

are there any clues in the source html of the redirect notice page?

It's solved now!
3 days later, I got this from Adwords Dedicated Support:

"Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
The reason you are receiving this redirect was due to a technical issue on our side. This technical issue has now been resolved."

Well, well, what a surprise!

Geez, If this doesn't make Google some money with repeat clicks.
