OK... I am a big one for admitting when I was wrong.
I was wrong.
The Hosts file, while a good Idea, will not help with the tor -> google issue. Google will serve up whichever version of google you need based on your IP from any of their servers that you request it from.
so I changed the hosts file with the line
I flushed the DNS thru ipconfig and then surfed to www.google.ie and was given the google ireland page. this was strange so I ping'd www.google.ie and was shown the new IP. so my computer is going to the English Google's IP address and retrieving
www.google.ie. I figure that they are just smart over there at google and serve up which ever google you request no mater which server you connect to.
I then realized that they are handling the web page change on their end of the connection (@google) so changing the IP address of www.google.ie on my end wouldn't help. I admit defeat.
On the other hand I now have a much better handle on the hosts file and the DNS service in windows.
I now have to endorse www.google.com/ncr as probably the only solution to this problem.
good luck to all
