    Google in spanish?

    So recently when I scroll to www.google.com my browser changes to www.google.es and takes me to the spanish version ... its not hard to correct, I just click the link to english at the bottom right, but it is an annoyance. Anybody have a fix? I've already cleared my casche, cookies, and temp files...

    It doesn't seem to happen all the time ... maybe 50% of the time.

    also I'm using IE7, which I know is the devil to some of you, but it is what it is.

    Google is detecting your IP as south of the border I bet. When I was in the UK it knew and sent me to the UK site, when I was in Jamaica, it sent me to the Jamaica site.

    any corrections for that?

    I put my machine on standby quite a bit and log on at various sites for work and home ... I've been told by IT to log off and log on again because my ip address was something strange.

    PM me your IP address, and I will look it up on the big 2 engines that most big providers use.
