    You know what Shawn?

    This might explain why I keep getting German sites, because I have this switch turned off, and the sites use my ISP then.

    It's annoying when, for example, I'm at a Microsoft page I need/want to be. then change the language from German to English, and BAM! I'm sent to the Microsoft homepage, and need to go from there to get the page I want in English.

    This happens with most international sites.

    I'll try turning it on, and see if that helps.

    So thanks for the "smack on the back of the head"Name:  vio12.gif
