I have uninstalled Google Earth and reinstalled several times, both from the internet and the PC Advisor DVD. When using it 4 times out of 5 the system freezes and can only be unlocked by switching off at the mains. Is there something incompatible in my system (Windows XP Pro. SP2).Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
Mine both operate about the same speed and when I open them both together and tile them horizontally on the same wiew,I find the detail is much better on live/local.It all comes down to personal preference,and what you are looking at.
My pc is 18 months old; Athlon 64 1.81 GHz, 1.00GB; Hard drive 2GB, approx 1.6Gb available. Have broadband. The freezing seems to go on forever, (admittedly have never sat waiting long enough to see if it eventually recovers). I may try the tip re pop-up blocker.
