Google Earth not opening
I recently noticed another google earth icon appeared on my desktop and since then my google earth will not open properly, what do I do ?
Never really heard of that happening before.

Thanks Spider, I know it's weird it's the first time it's ever happened to me, when I click on the Google Earth icon all it displays is this while initializing.

How do I run as administrator ? I'll try that first.

I have windows but I couldn't get the administrator option to work, could be I've never set that up before since none of the passwords I used would work.
This is another message that popped up.

If I have to download a new Google Earth I would like to avoid losing all the years of work I've put into it which happened after my last OS re-install, this is a screenshot of what I've copied and saved onto a usb, will this work with my next GE download ? should I un-install my current GE before getting a new one ?

I've uninstalled google earth and installed a new one, it seems to have saved all my places but it's still not displaying properly, the 2nd image is what happens when I zoom in, any more ideas/advice would be appreciated.

Hmm, that's really weird.
I'm not an expert by any means on this, but you can try a few more things:
Under options menu:
3D View Tab: Change the graphics mode: Try it in DirectX or OpenGL (or even safe mode)
Cache Tab: Clear the memory and the disk cache, make sure they both have enough memory (mines set to 1000MB memory and 2000MB disk)
Do you have GE blocked on your firewall? I think it might have something to do with the internet connection not necessarily with Google Earth.
