Starting just a few days ago when I try to do a google search from the search bar in either firefox or IE11 all results are from google.co.jp.  I have ran every virus/trojan/rootkit scan possible with no luck in finding anything wrong.  I have verified that my location in windows is Canada and language is english.  None of my search results are being redirected to questionable sites so I doubt it is virus etc.  If I type www.google.com into the address bar it will take me directly to that site and my searches will be in english.  I am told that there is a possibility that my IP address might be being read improperly by google when i search using the search bar and for some reason it thinks i'm in japan, not Canada.  Any thoughts on this issue?
