Websites that are the target of a DDoS attack are often targeted. DDoS is a distributed denial of service that occurs if a website is accessed once too many times in a very short time. Think of it as a restaurant that suddenly gets overcrowded and can’t serve and / or sit on them all. It needs to turn people away and a website, when at its full potential, will become accessible to users.
Your computer or network may be asking automated questions
There are many reviews on websites to prevent themselves from being the target of a DDoS attack. If an IP address re-accesses a website within a short time, you may see a CAPTCHA or similar scan to minimize incoming queries from your system.
If you are trying to do something on Google or you are visiting a website, and you see the message ‘Your computer may be asking automated questions,’ it means your computer, and with an extension, you’ve gotten to a website too many times. It has developed a protection tool that will slow you down and whether you have proven that you are not a bot or may refuse to display the website at all.
Automated queries – how to fix them
For the message ‘Your computer may be sending automated messages’ may always appear, try the following.
1. Remove extension
If you have not been accessing a website often enough to prevent direct access, your extensions may be to blame. You may have posted an extension that is malicious. The quickest way to fix this is to enable them all.
- Open to browser.
- Go to extension manager.
- Disable all extensions.
- Browse normally and a message should leave.
2. Disable network monitoring tools
If you use a network monitoring tool to monitor the incoming and outgoing network applications, it may interfere with your connection to a website. Please turn it off. The app itself may not be malicious but the website may still display it as suspicious and try to slow down your access to the website.
3. Scan your system
If there is no fault of an extension or network monitoring tool, it is possible that an application that you have installed on the system is sending requests. Malware often secretly installs on systems and uses these systems to send large numbers of applications to a targeted website.
- Open Windows Defender.
- go to Virus and threat protection.
- Click Scan options.
- Choose Whole scan and click Scan now.
- Let the scan finish and remove all contagious objects.
- It is also useful to scan the system with the free version of Malware Bytes and eradicate all disease.
4. Delete Cookies
Cookies are small files that websites save to your system. They usually expire after some time but some cookies are not updated. If a cookie is malicious or just too old, it may be causing problems with your browsing session.
- Open to browser.
- Go to browser options.
- Look for the clear history option.
- Select Cookies and Delete All.
5. Connect to a different network
Perhaps a problem with the network you are using to connect to the internet. Changing the network you can solve the problem ‘Your computer may be asking automated questions’.
Some websites trigger the message “Your computer may be asking automated questions” even if you have only been visiting them effortlessly over a long period of time. Anything that looks like unusual traffic tends to be blocked but if you see this message frequently, and just for a particular website, it is possible that the website is having problems of its own. If you see it for a more popular website like Google, you should run a full system scan and consider a clean install no matter what browser you are using.
