    Hi all,
    Recently, everytime I click on a Microsoft Support Link, like the one for CD reading analysis on the XP-erience front page, I end up on the Japan site. The address is just to suport.microsoft.com.
    I thought something is telling it I am Japanese but I am not. jaja
    It is just a vanilla install of XP Pro.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Kilo

    I think it may read your host. If you are connecting from a Japanese internet provider, it may detect that and send you to the Japanese site based on your ISP.

    I think I just fixed it...On the support site, (in Japanese) at the bottom there is a link to "See International settings". But only on mouseover. I set it to US and now it works.
    I don't know how it changed, but once changed it is hard to find to change back...Since it is in Japanese.

    So if this helps anyone else, it is now in the search path.
