    Wrong location on my desktop


    Computer thinks our server is in a location 60 miles from where we actually are. It has been this way for years even though we've moved offices twice, the location used when we use our browsers, etc... stays in Titusville, FL and not in Orlando. How can I fix this?

    :)
