I also never had that update that was previously mentioned.
Check this:

Right click the drop down arrow on the right. Do you see the Google logo on the left?

Re: Blocked website.

It seems that Xvirus Web Guard didn't like the "Fiddler" that's installed on my machine. It just blocked it on first launch of IE but subsequently allows. Must be a bug in Xvirus Web Guard.
