How do i set my homepage for yahoo in english while i am living in an arabic speaking country?

Question by fakingsanity: How do i set my homepage for yahoo in english while i am living in an arabic speaking country?
Whenever I open my browser I get Yahoo!’s Arabic homepage (Maktoob). Even though my homepage is set to www.yahoo.com, it automatically senses that I am in a foreign country and redirects me. How can I change it back?

    Taken from the Yahoo help pages:

    <

    If cookies are enabled, your browser will navigate directly to Yahoo.com on all subsequent visits. For more information on cookies, please visit our privacy page

    If cookies are disabled, you'll continue to be redirected each time you visit Yahoo! You can prevent this either by enabling cookies or directly typing http://us.yahoo.com into your browser. Visitors to http://us.yahoo.com will be shown the same site as Yahoo.com.

    Finally, if you feel that we're detecting your IP address incorrectly, please use the Feedback link below to send us the following information:

    1. Your IP address.

    If you don't know your IP address, please visit http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and send us the IP that is listed on the top of the page. Your IP address will look something like this: 217.148.184.7

    2. Your location (e.g. Seoul, Korea).

    3. The Yahoo! site you're being redirected to (e.g. au.yahoo.com).

    If we're able to fix the problem, we'll do so as soon as possible.>>

    try running the tdsskiller scan and check for rootkit infections
    go to start -> Run and then copy and paste this link and run the scan
    once the rootkit infections are removed your browser wont redirect
