Google earth locks up on my PC after about 20 seconds, each time I start to use it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, fixing, the lot and it just wont work.

has anyone else had this and any ideas on a fix?

I think Windows Live Local is a slightly better one anyway. Although you can't zoom in quite as much as Google Earth, the pictures are a bit sharper and the high definition coverage is a lot better.

If you haven't already done so, try installing the latest drivers for your graphics card.

Also ensure DirectX is up to date. See:

I had the same problems with the latest Google Earth Beta. I reinstalled the previous version and all stabilised again.
