I live in Crete, Greece and, up to now, I have had no problems with Google searches. But now, everything is in Greek - logon, search dialogue boxes and search results only find .gr URL's What can I do to tell Google that I want English and .UK or .com results?

At the very bottom of the Google search home page is there a line of text (probably in Greek)? If so the far right one of those should be Google.com - there is on the Google UK page anyway. To get to Google.com you should click on that far line of text as they are links and it might just take you to the Google.com page

Google seems to have a time limit on when it decides you are no longer a visitor but a resident and then changes it's search page to whatever language it thinks is local. I have a mate who spent three years in Kefalonia and after a few months had the same problem.

Try google.co.uk/webhp?complete=0

When I go to google.gr page is in English and underneath 'Google Search' 'I'm feeling lucky' there is 'Google.gr offered in: Ελληνικ?' and at very bottom right of page a link to go to google.com

All my searches from google.gr return results in English.

I vaguely remember something in the past about setting Language or maybe it was along the lines of not 'automatically find my location' (or both)

Can anyone remember what and where the above settings are?
