    All of a sudden I'm getting boxes with Korean (I think) under my Google search box and my results are weird. (See screenshot) I "uninstalled Google and deleted updates, still the same. I don't torrent or go to any bad websites on my phone (you know what I mean). My Google search language is set to English. Clicking on the boxes thats me to what looks like links in Korean. I downloaded AVG which didn't find anything.

    Any ideas WTF?

    TIA,

    Did you try a different DNS? Maybe even a different WiFi if that's what you are using.

    Check your language settings in Google Now.

    Hmmm... I don't have Google Now set up. I've checked all the language settings in all the Googles I can find. The only thing checked is English (US).

    Thanks, tho...

    OK, people. I was using Buzz Launcher. When I switched to Launcher 3, good ol' Google popped up without any Korean. It must be something in the Launcher settings.

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Any launcher suggestions at this late date in the thread?

    I tried Buzz for awhile. Almost to much.
    You looking for something unique or more Stock like?

    Nova works great on the turbo.
