Whilst using the internet at school (behind schoolzone proxy) I keep getting Redirects from google saying something along the lines of "This page is attempting to redirect you to....." with a link to the page. Clicking on the link does nothing, or takes you to the same page which is annoying however copying the link and pasting it into the search bar gives the correct page.

It appears to be happening randomly and quite often (say 2-3 pages in 20 or sometimes 1-50), at first I thought it was just me and my laptop however its happening to other people in my Art design and photography class (incl teacher) My laptop runs W7 Ult 64x using Chrome, Art computers are apple using safari (Snow leopard I think)

So the issue appears to be cross platform and cross browser, I'm not sure what causes it or how to fix. I'm also unsure if it affects anyone out side of Art Design or Photography. I'm guessing it could be tied to a group policy somehow but I doubt it.

Anyone else experienced this or no what causes it? My main guess is that its an issue with schoolzone/google.

We use schoolzone at our school. Only google problems we have is a https problem with gmail which returns an http443 error or something.

Have you tried setting the DNS server manually on your laptop.

So it's preventing hijacks?
