Make your home page and search page American .com sites. Try Google, Yahoo, and even some of the smaller ones. In searches, add USA after your search criteria. If a web address entered does not get you the US version, try adding US to the address: .... .com/US .

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If you live in mainland China (not Taiwan or Hong Kong), be advised that they seriously limit access to the internet (though it's unlikely you can see this):

And be careful of where you attempt to go as well. Such activity could be seen as subversive as well. With the blocking and monitoring that apparently occurs, it may be best not to use the internet at all.

China has some of the most advanced hackers in the world no to mention one of the most anti-democratic anti-freedom regimes. The internet there is government controlled. What you may be seeing if you even get romanji is a faux page.

Not even sure you can use a tor or other proxy to access to then connect to an external server. I think I'd consider that. You pay for a company to then re-direct your web that is located outside China.

Thanks, but I can't choose a best reply. No one addressed the issue. The problem is not the internet, but the operating system. As I stated, I live in China and am well aware of most of what everyone was happy to point out, but thinking you know is far different than knowing.

#1 gives you a possible work around
#2 tells you why it may not always work anyway
#3 tells you another work around that may or may not always work

If you have a China version of Windows that may be government hacked then you can try purchasing a US or European version and doing a completely clean install to see if this works.

If you think you have a common (in China) bug that is preventing your access then try downloading Malwarebytes and run it in Safe Mode to try to remove it.

Or: If you really happen to know exactly what the problem is better than everyone else that is trying to help you then why are you asking us?

Just to be pedantic there is no such language as Chinese any more than there is a language called American.

In China the language would be either Mandarin or Cantonese among many others. Cantonese being widely spoken in South/West China.

In America the language would be English.
