Make sure you dont have a virus that is proxying your traffic.  A sign that this is happening is the internet runs much slower than normal

Where are you running google?  I have given up trying to land on google.com. It insists on running from the country where the computer is.

Couple of workarounds here but really (as long as you don't have a proxy with a Czech IP) you need to let Google know as their servers are wrongly geo-locating you.

Incidentally are you also on Verizon?
Looking at that other thread wonder if they are routing some of their connections via .cz servers.  Try a tracert and see how you are connecting.

Look in your Hosts file and make sure that you are not being redirected.

The file is located here:

C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc

You want the one that is just called "Hosts"
It can be opened with Notepad. There is typically a localhost entry like 127.0.0.1
Let me know what you find.

The default for 127.0.0.1 is just localhost . Only malware will change that unbeknown to the user.

If it is localhost, it should not affect Google.

Also, google "my iP" and make sure that the IP address returned is your outside ipaddress.

I agree... but something may have changed it to redirect to an alternate location.

I tried everything here and i found doing an Ipconfig /all in dos that the DHCP dns servers were chec,   I changed them to the OPEN DNS NUMBERS:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

And everything was back to normal.

Thanks everyone
