Hoping someone can help me... We spent the fall in Germany with a study abroad program. We are now back home in the US, but a couple of our laptops still come up as though they are in Germany when browsing, especially for google sites. I have checked the ip address and it is showing Davenport, Iowa (the location of mediacomm's servers). Any ideas for correcting this problem?

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Do you have German selected as the first language choice in your browser's language preferences?

What Browser are you using?
There should be a setting in most browsers to define, what search engine to use, what the homepage should be,
Instead of Google.de it should be Google.com

Also I would clean out all your History in the browser, delete Cookies, (probably they re-direct).
And check your Keyboard settings in the Control Panel and the Time Zones.
