"C:\Program Files\Google\Google Earth\GoogleEarth.exe"

by bently / January 13, 2006 3:24 AM PST

When I click on GoogleEarth.exe, most of the time I get satellite pictures of earth.

SOMETIMES, I click on it and my screen goes BLACK, and I have to hit reset button to reboot.

Any ideas what causes this and how to avoid it?

Try uninstalling it and reinstalling it.

Sounds like you have a missing or a corrupt file.

I have the full Pro version for the GPS function, and I've never seen a black screen.
