    Depending on your location it may not be your choice.  E.g. Google would want you to see ads which were targeted for people where you live not as if you were somewhere else.  So, then it would not be IE11 "choosing" that domain but a combination of your DNS and Google servers doing that by redirects.  Use the Developer Tools, Network capture tool to see what is going on exactly.  Note that since you are interested in seeing redirects you must not have Clear entries on navigate enabled (an unfortunate default of that tab).

  • Hi,

    Have you checked the system language and browser language on your computer? Compare to other machines and check the differences. Check with google about if this redirection behavior is depending on IP address, or you could trace DNS package and see what happened when you send query to your DNS server. As a workaround, we could try force redirection by using host file.

  • Hi,

    I think ie stands for Ireland. As mentioned by Robert, some website might redirect you to most appropriate site depending on your IP address/location/system language and it may not be your choice.

    Network monitor 3.4 (Network Monitor is the archive versioned tool for network traffic capture and protocol analysis. Download Microsoft Message Analyzer for updated parser support.)

  • What is strange though is the other PCs on the same subnet are fine and go out to the internet on the same public IP.

    Great.  Then you have two cases to trace and compare for their essential differences.

    Good luck
