Google considers its own query as spyware

Since I am stuck in an ASP.NET issue, as always I try to use Google. Specifically, I would like to somehow detect in server code whether the application is deployed on IIS or on the integrated development web server.

So I type:

asp.net detect development server

in the Google search text field:

However, only first 11 pages can actually be examined. When you click on the link to page number 12 (or any greater number) you'll learn that the link comes from a virus or a spyware software (screenshot taken on another machine since the description is localized on my development machine):

I guess it's one of the simplest viruses/spyware ever written. If you are a numerologist you'll probably know what's so specific in number 12.
