Seagate support

by Willy / April 15, 2013 11:12 PM PDT

I tried today with: www.seagate.com goes to webpage and then when I click on support it becomes a Russian version. I did nothing to my browser, so I wonder how others see this.

I see the translate from browser but that fails. The click on proper webpage is available for "language version" but this has never happened before what gives?

TIA -----Willy Happy

Willy, have you tried clearing your browser cache? I just tried www.seagate.com with Chrome, Firefox, and IE9, and in all 3 cases it worked for me in English, no sign of Russian. If it's not your browser cache, maybe you should boot to Safe Mode and check for viruses.

Tada! Grin

I use Chrome and when it repeatedly when to a Russian support website, I exit out. I later tried IE and it did OK. I then re-tried Chrome and it was correct. Go figure...

I *might* have accidently hit the language key selection, but that's a guess. The browser is OK now, but I'll keep an eye on it. As for any virus, etc., that isn't a problem with my PC, it's well protected, though it could happen. Scans came-up negative. I just posted the ? because I thought it odd and wondered if anyone else ran across this. thanks ----Willy Wink
