Google in Russian

  twitcher 10:33 22 May 2006

I have the Google toolbar installed. When I use the search facility, the searches are in English but yesterday all the text on the Google window appeared in Russian. Does anybody know how this happened and how I can get back to the English version?

Use the Preferences link to alter Google settings to your requirements.

Don't forget to Save any changes.

Thanks, I've tried this but everything still comes up in Russian. I've tried deleting the Google cookie but to no avail. I've even tried the facility for resetting the toolbar in IE but still no joy. Below is an example of what is displayed when the Google window appears.

Shall I delete the toolbar and start again?:-

Sorry about the above - I copied the Russian script, but it doesn't seem to have come out in the actual post.

Hardly surprising..:-)

Yes, try reinstalling it.

I used to have it but didn't like the security aspects involved if someone else managed to gain access to your system...:-(

Having noted what you said about security Stuartli, I have deleted the toolbar. I've had the toolbar for about 2 years without any problem, but this week I switched to broadband and this is one of several problems I've had in spite of running AVG Prof. Ed. with firewall.
