What's up with Google? "this site may harm your computer"

Have I got some kind of a virus or has Google decieded they don't like making money? I do a search and every site gets the warning "this site may harm your computer" and you get bumped to a warning page, then shown a link to "stopbadware.org". The link doesn't appear to work?

Time to short Google stock?

I went to the Pope's website: www.vatican.va and it said the same thing.

What's the Pope been doing lately?

It's got to be a money thing that backfired.

BYW, who owns www.badware.org? They are tying up everyone's stuff.

Time to use another browser besides IE and amnother search engine besides google.
