    I notice after I clear my cookies, the first time I visit www.msn.com it was fine. but when I refresh it, it bring me to th.msn.com again. Is this a virus?

    thanks all.

      How do you access the internet? It may be that your source IP is in a list shown as Thailand. Much like Google defaults to what it thinks is your local range. DO you use a proxy to connect to the internet?

        As Andy says, this is done from your IP address, not your computer's localisation settings. Which page do you get?

          I'm not sure about MSN, but Google seems to be based on the regional settings of your machine - or at least, it does when I access it from Firefox on my Mac...

          If I set the region to UK, I get Google UK. If I set the region to US, I get google.com. If I set the region to Wales, I get get Google Cymraeg. All from the same IP

            Hi Andy:
            I am using lease line , not go through any proxy to connect to internet. So the IP confirm not from thailand.
            any other reason can cause redirect me to thailand? Thanks.

              You could try the IP info bit at the bottom of this page?

              I didn't realise google worked that way gforce, I think there must be more to it as I know an ISP within Hammersmith picks up Google.DE and all their machines are definitely set for UK. Bit odd!
              cheers
