Turned on my laptop today and google earth applications has gone from my desktop and programs list. i have a lot of locations stored on there, can anyone advise what might of happened and how i can try to locate?
search has wielded no results yet.

It's probably your auto cleanup which removed unused desktop icons.

Locate the programme mfolder and create a new desktop shortcut.

I keep all my shortcuts in a folder on the desktop to stop exactly this happening.

thanks - but it isnt in my programs list, and i looked in the 'uninstall program' feature to see if it was there and it isn't.

is restore my only option? how do i do a restore back to say a week ago?
will a restore affect any changes ive made say to a word or excel document?

Look in c:\program files\google\google earth\client and it should be there. Like hondaman said, just create another shortcut to the file googleearth. If not it's probably been uninstalled.
