We had this problem occur at our work except it was redirectred to .de.  It is our ISP, and not something we can fix.  Unfortunately Google started doing redirection to the Country of origin based on the original IP Address assignment by IANA/ARIN.  After looking into where our range of IP addresses originated, I found that it was allocated to the GBLX European AS-Set Maintainer (in Germany) which is where our ISP gets its addresses from.  We of course have a portion of those addresses allocated to us.

Maybe use the IP address? Although that may be a little unconventional...

www.google.com resolves to 216.239.37.99 for me.

www.google.com/ncr still redirects it to uk site...

and strange enough, on my desktop, it is www.google.com


www.google.co.uk is just my laptop.....so, maybe it is not isp??!!  thx

Tools->Internet Options->Language and add American English (us) to the top of the list and clear cache, cookies and history after that. google.com should work after that (google has the ability to localize itself according to your language prefs...)
Hope I helped...

mcrmg,

Do you have Google Toolbar installed? If so, check in google Toolbar options. You can set the search domain in there. I've set mine to google.co.in
