You can go back to the old (Classic) gmail.  Click on the gear at the top right and then select "go back to classic gmail" at the top of the drop down. 

Google bought recaptca in 2009.

I switched back to the classic gmail after jffryclough posted.  Once I saw the complaints from all the other gmail users I realized it wasn't going to be fixed anytime soon.  Plus now the reCAPTCHA isn't working at all!  When you click on it it just gets check marked so you don't have to do anything.  Now it's not in the annoying mode but it's now in the unsafe mode because it's allowing scammers to get through and win everything.  Google needs to get their act together!!

well google won't reply so i'm taking the fight to the sponsors and hope others will do the same.  on facebook i tell them that the security 'captcha' is broken and we can't access their sweeps giving the impression of a 'rigged' sweep. and add that this has been a problem for some time that google won't address.  and i hope that the sponsors can light a fire under them or trash the program altogether.   any and all help will be much appreciated.  make it work or trash it.

to all of you still having a problem, unplug your router if your using one and leave it unplugged over night, i was having a problem for weeks and didn't want to unplug mine because there are 4 other computers on it, one a gamer, but i got tired of not being able to enter, so two days ago i unplugged it and now no problem with recaptcha, i use fire fox.
