Thank you Mark. You'v right. after I downloaded several time the "Google Earth 5.0 (beta)downloader.exe, without succes I just when download the full Googleearth-FRwin-plus-4.3.7284.3916 application and it works.That means that the "GoogleEarthSetup.exe" (535 kb)witch download and install the full application does'nt work properly.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
