When I try to go to http://google.com I an redirected to google.be/ I have the option to select English, and it does take me to the search results I'm looking for.

I've run Malwarebytes, and it comes up clean. This also happened on a new install of Firefox 3.6.13

Thoughts?

Please delete. ISP/Router change at work is the culprit. Redirect happens in both IE and Firefox. Connected to network outside of company network without issue.

Since others can learn from this we will leave the topic. It's rare we delete topics.

Thank you for sharing the resolution.
