Hi tig9226

Welcome to BleepingComputer.

Just a thought, have you gone to "Date and Time" in your Control Panel and changed things back to Stateside?

How did you connect to the web in Germany? Have you deleted all traces of the connection that you used in Germany and installed a new connection for the USA? I don't believe that this is the issue, but it will at least be a start at resetting your system to normal.
