    So I did a quick scrape with ScrapeBox, and a long scrape with the cracked version of Scrape Genius found in the Downloads Section...

    My IP got blocked by Google because Scrape Genius's GUI doesn't seem to appear properly in Windows 7 - I couldn't see the "use proxies" button properly...

    Anyway I verified I was a human with Google, mad sure the Proxie button was clicked, and started scraping again... Scrape Genius freezed, so I closed it with Task Manager - opened up Google Chrome, is doesn't connect to anything - the Error message I get it "Error(0) : Unknown" ... WTF?

    I'm using FireFox right now which I guess I don't really mind - but Chrome is so much faster, I just generally prefer it? I've turned off my PC, re-installed it, restored factory settings ... I just really don't know why it doesn't connect to anything?

    Can anybody help me? :)

    Once big G blocks you, it usually clears up after hours (sometimes several hours, just sayin')....I don't use Chrome any more for safety's sake and this account just reinforces my reasons for not using it for BH stuff.

    When I was scraping with Scrape Genius, I used the UserAgent Internet Exploer 6 - also, they haven't blocked me. I verified I was human, then reset my router to get a new IP Address.

    I think I hav a BotNet on my Computer. Internet Explorer keeps redirecting my searches to spammy pages - I haven't got a clue how to clear it up either. Danm .. I'm not touching Scrape Genius again - why can't ScrapeBox do my job! :(

    Thanks for the reply though! :D
