What happened to English?

4 posts in this topic

Some Microsoft web pages that I do a Google search for are showing up in German. I found this out when I clicked on a link that was supposed to take me to a FixIt page for disabling the Windows Sidebar and Gadgets. Then I Googled the main Microsoft FixIt page and suddenly it's all in German. Can someone please tell me what's going on here?

You should learn one of the most beautiful languages :D:lol::w00t:

To fix it open the IE options, cklick on "languages" and add "en-us" as first ad remove "de-de". if this doesn't help, go to microsoft.com and at the top you have a link to change the language.

I don't use IE. I use Firefox and the preferred Language is English. It was working fine. I've never run into this before, ever, and suddenly my Microsoft pages want to display in German. I haven't found any other pages this way -- only Microsoft pages.
