    I just wondered what happened to

    Is anyone in the US still visiting this site and seeing everything in

    I'm in the UK, and when I go to it is a German Google site!
    Everything is German. It has been this way for quite some time now.

    It could be, that when you installed your system, you didn`t select the
    correct regional setting

    No, no proxy.

    My question isn't about trying to use google that's not a problem. I
    just wanted to know if you guys in the US can still go to google.COM
    and see it all in English, and whether anyone in the UK can as well?
    When I go there as I said it's all German. is fine that's what I use a lot. I just wanted to know
    why is german though and whether it is only my machine or
    if its like that everywhere?

    I asked if you were using a proxy because If they think your IP address is
    coming from Germany then it will be displayed in a german language.

    I found out what the problem is. It is to do with a german ip
    address! Apparently the ADSL company I am with gets their service
    through telefonica not BT, here in the UK.

    It still seems strange to me though because Telefonica is Spanish is
    it not? So I still don't understand how I get a German IP address :(

    Another strange thing is that the company I was with before
    is a French company with services in the UK and European countries as
    well. So I don't understand how it always came up in German when I
    was with them as well.

    Looks like I wont be able to visit again, unless I want to
    see it in German :( That has got to suck.

    Go to google, click Preferences, and set it to english. Preferences is the
    second link to the immediate right of the search field.
