Sounds like a question for Google+ support.

My guess is that your IP address is located in a primarily Spanish-speaking country and until you login to Google+ the assumption is that Spanish is the appropriate language for your connection.

thanks for the help:-)

not sure if this is it though as ip is in north europe, but nevertheless it is worth a shot.

everything was fine until my friend logged into his google account, and then all went the way of the dodo:-)

so heres hoping that google+ support can help,

thanks again
