Firefox wrong country?

Post by Syztemlord on Thu Dec 23, 2010 11:37 pm

Hi,

As of today Firefox on my PC thinks I'm in Denmark. A few site I've gone to have "auto detected" that I'm in Denmark, but I'm actually in Guernsey, Channel Islands. I've used WhatsmyIP and it confirmed I'm here.

Any idea what is happening and how I can fix it?

Thanks, I downloaded the quick locale switcher but I'm still having problems. The 1st site I noticed the problem on was play.com I have cleared cache etc set everything to UK locale but the site still thinks I'm in Denmark.

I opened something yesterday which was a virus but was blocked by avast, looks like something has got through :-( Just in case here is a Hijackthis log:

Re: Firefox wrong country?

Ok, not sure how this happened but I think my router got hacked? I just did a couple more IP checks and it came back with 91.190.160.136 and I'm in Guernsey from ip-adress.com, but then I tried checkip.org and it said same IP but I'm in Denmark. So I rebooted my router (Vigor 2820n) and I was issued 78.111.204.14 from my ISP and I'm officially back in Guernsey now!

No idea how that could of happened but Play.com is now showing no sign of Denmark! lol

I see some strange things on your HijackThis log.

I suggest you to open new topic in our Malware Removal forum for cleaning your computer. Read this topic for more information.
