Thank you Bob B and Papa Echo. I did the things you had mentioned prior to posting the problem, but nothing worked. Okay.. get this...I tried again, just typing Google.com on the address bar and it once again came up Google.com UK, HOWEVER.... I saw something I'd never seen before. Underneath the little search window (just below the cute cartooned "GOOGLE") where it ordinarily says "Advertising Programs"...."Business Solutions"...."About Google".... there was a 4th choice...."Go to Google United States". At first I felt embarassed, thinking "How in the world did I miss that?" I showed it to my daughter and the first thing she said was "Wait a minute... that wasn't a choice before!" Good... I'm not cracking up! Anyway, I picked alternative number 4.. "Go to Google United States" and when I did, it worked. But I noticed that 4th choice was still there. Except this time, it said "Go to Google UK" I figured Google must have made that change during that period of time I was struggling with it. But, no.......Hold on......When I later typed in Google.com, the 4th choice did not exist anymore. The story gets better. The same thing happened later on my daughter's computer.....
Google.com went to Google.com UK, and there is no 4th alternative. What the heck is going on?????? I hope it's not some kind of virus or Trojan or something.
