Ok I have never had this happen before and no clue what is going on but here it goes ... Last night my internet went down. I reset the modem (Verizon Fios) and it kicked in like 10 minutes later. As of last night and this morning every computer is being redirected to Google.de when I type in www.google.com. This is on the main wired computer Vista, a Wireless iMac and a wireless Mac Laptop. I have no clue what to do I keep searching, resetting, unplugging, clearing, and no luck. Please can someone help me with this!

Hi and welcome to the WTT forums :welcome: Sorry to hear of the problems with the Google searching. The solution depends on whether you are seeing the page in German or another language...however the following instructions will usually do the trick ......(I have given the German and English translations which may help) 1 open Internet Explorer and go here: www.google.de 2 click on "Einstellungen" which means Preferences. 3 On the line that begins "Sprache der Benutzeroberfläche" which means "Interface Language" select in the white box "English" or whatever language you want to use. 4 In the area beginning with "Suchsprache" which means "search language" put a dot in the 2nd (lower) radio button and select the language you require from the list. 5 click on the button "Einstellungen speichern" which means Save Preferences 6 Click on OK and see how you go Regards paws

thanks for the reply :) it just changed google.de to english but according the address bar it is still on google.de. this is so weird since yesterday afternoon it was fine. I scanned my computer (anyone know of any really good scanners that i try for free) and nothing came up. I just called Verizon Fios if they can reset my ip and they just had me reset my modem and that of course did nothing. Any other tips on how to get my computers back to the defaults like it was (not even sure how this started)

Yes, you do need to fill USA as the country you live in.

Did you follow the link I sent to you in my last post?

Best regards,

Hi thanks!! I did all the steps but when one of my programs avast is reading the setup as this:
C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\DRDld\mbam-setup.exe
Win32:Spyware-gen [Trj]
Trojan Horse
081121-0, 11/21/2008

is this bad that a trojan was found in this malwarebytes program?

and using this site showipaddress it shows my country as "Germany". I would assume this is why Google is geolocating me wrong. Can my ISP fix this, I have no clue why it is reading me as Germany.

Hi blaqpig,

Windows 6.0.6001 Service Pack 1

I am not familiar with Vista, have you got your Windows Updates current?
I notice your Malwarebytes' Scan is clear.

What I suggest you do is post a HJT log over on the correct forum by following this link. When you do, include this thread at the beginning of your post so the Malware fighters can see you have attemped to fix your own problem with no joy. If you have not heard from a Malware fighter within 5 days, post here with a gentle reminder, but be patient as they are inundated with logs to analise.

Kind regards,
