Hi John, thank you very much for your reply, but still the same. The language is set to Inglish. The problem is only the Sponsored links opens in a very strange language, the rest is ok.
Thanks again
Tony

Sorry I misunderstood your original post.

Links are separate pages and will open in the language they are written in. In Firefox there is the facility to translate; I`m not sure if this is so in IE even as an add on.

If the sponsored links are written in Cyrillic or Chinese script they will appear as that, or as near as IE can make it. If they are, say, German or French they may appear in the language of the country. It is also possible for any of the mentioned possibilities to appear in English if this is the language used to write the content. You would need to look at the URL to determine the origin of the site assuming it wasn`t simply .com/.net/.org as many are.

Hi John, thank you ever so much for your reply, but no, all Sponsored links open in a strange language,I can only discribe it as like, when you searching the internet, the first few sites (Sponsored links) all open in chinese or japenese writing. I have checked the language and it is set in english. For some reason only the Sponsored links open like that, regarding where they are from or language.
Sorry about that, i do apriciate you effort.
Thanks again
Tony

Do the links go to foreign sites?,if so they may well open up in there native language.

If they are not try this right click the web page
goto encoding in the list and select Unicode(UTF-8)see if that helps.
