    I purchased a laptop while living in Germany, it has German licences for windows etc. I am now living back in the UK having completed my sandwich year. How do I convince my laptop I now live in the UK and not merely on holiday? I try an access I player and it blocks me because it thinks I am not UK based and thus no TV licence, yes I pay my TV licence, also when I access sites like amazon it directs me to the german version even when I type in co.uk????

    How can I change the settings so my laptop knows I am back in the UK?

    For the record I have Virgin Fibre broadband
