[duplicate] Google Redirecting to Google.de

Unread postby BlackGoku03 » December 15th, 2009, 4:28 am

I'm trying to figure out why a friend's computer is redirecting his google searches to German site google.de

Likewise, his searches have been redirected to google.uk and we live in the US.

I've tried to replace the hosts file in the etc directory but it didn't work. I tried to edit the file but hijackthis keeps saying it's there. What do I do? Here's the log:
