Win 7 Pro 64-bit
Google Home Page displayed in Chinese

I am having this same issue on a Customer's PC - Win 7 Home Premium SP1 - 64 bit

The issue occurs in IE, Mozilla Firefox, and Chrome. When Google is opened, a page displayed in Chinese can be translated to read four steps to access IIS Help.

I have reset all browser setting and cleared all cache.

When Google is addressed, the same Chinese page appears.

I have also attempted this from multiple ISPs with the same result on this one PC. Thus, eliminating a Google Server trying to pinpoint my public IP
