Google USA (0 Results) For All Searches

I am unable to scrape anything from Google when using SCM. If I try and browse google from a web browser I am not shown any type of Captcha or Ban that would show that my IP was being blocked. When I search the terms in my browser I get results; however from within SCM the log constantly shows 0 results for the search terms in Google USA. I am using the latest version of SCM (4.1.0.2).

Also is their documentation on how to use other search engines for scraping such as Bing/Bing Cache/Google CSE as I saw these options on this site; but I am not sure how to select them for scraping.

1. For testing purposes, trying installing a free VPN service and see if that works. I did a test run on newest install and I was able to scrape without problems.

2. If possible, completely remove the SCM folder manually and re-install

3. There are 2 CSE examples that get installed if you re-install SCM from scratch. However, usage instructions are here: http://vote.seocontentmachine.com/responses/custom-search-engine-by-google
