yahoo blocks my google search!

This is really weird. I go to search for images and wallpapers
in google and I get aan error. This error states that this is
bad seach. This is the weird part, this message is comming
from a yahoo page. I know its not a fake,cause I did ping
and sure enough its yahoo. Why would yahoo block me from doing
a google search?

You're not alone. I posted this a while back:

I'm not sure what it is really. It is annoying when it does it though.

weird error

Mine is similar,but the fact is Im doing a google search and it sends me to a yahoo page. The yahoo page is telling me Im sending a bad request. This problem mainly affects image searches,but sometimes html searches as well. I've tried both Konqeror and Netscape. Also this problem is'nt isolated to google,the same thing happens when I use lycos,altavista,and dogpile. All of them give me the same error that sends me to the yahoo page. As soon as I boot my laptop up again I will post a screen shot.
