I have a 2 year old laptop & use Google through Internet Explorer, but this morning its opening as Google Pakistan! But I am from New York City. Never been to Pakistan nor loaned my Laptop out to anyone.

My one friend live in los angels, he also says that also her homepage changed to Pakistan". So She & I Both Awoke To A Pakistani Google Homepage. Google is opening "Google Pakistan" for some reason? Why?

  • It appears to be a problem that sometimes happens to Google as the search engine customizes its search results based on what country you're in.
  • Here's an answer from google.com: https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/873?hl=en
  • First of all turn on your browser's cookies to be able to save your settings.
  • You could bookmark http://www.google.com/ and set it as your home page if you want google.com to open upon loading of Internet Explorer.
  • As to why it happened, it's possible that your ISP gave you an IP address that was incorrectly detected by Google as originating from Pakistan. Just follow the prescribed solutions from Google and you should be fine.

Hope this helps!

  • Some reason of this why your default Google homepage redirects to Pakistan is that your IP address belongs to the Pakistan country. Some Internet Service Provider using stands like a proxy and acquiring internet connection from the other server which is based on the other country.
  • Another thing this could be happened is you have set your Time Zone which is equivalent to the time Zone of Pakistan.
  • To change your time Zone, click the date and time in your task tray then click the change date and time settings, the on the Date and Time tab, click the Change time zone, and on the Time zone, select the time zone which is appropriate to your country.
