I have partly resolved the problem by over installing the Google toolbar and making google UK the home page. Now when I press go to Google.com I get Google Nederland. The answers to searches are in English but the sponsored links are in Dutch!
Thanks for suggestions. I Now consider the matter resolved- sort of.
Click onto Tools at the top left of this page and select Internet Options. Where the address for the home page is shown just type www,google. co. uk I have deliberately left a space above to avoid this showing as a link. DO NOT leave a space
