Google Location Resets itself

On the Google results page, down the left hand side it gives me the opportunity to set a local location for searching. I have reset this on numerous occasions but each time the computer is started the location resets itself to the previous location. Can anyone suggest how I maintain the location I set?

from google support "Your manually set location will be saved in a browser cookie on your specific computer and internet browser only. When you use the same computer and browser, this manually set location will be used to customize your search results instead of the automatically detected location. If your location preference doesn’t remain saved on the browser or computer where you set it, please check your browser settings."
