OS is xphome sp1. I am trying to remove Google Earth using add and remove but get a message saying that it has encountered an error and is unable to remove it. I have tried doing it in Safe Mode but get the same message. Any suggestions please?

Sorry just read again about you have tried safemode..oops !

is there a reason why you still use sp1 ? updateing to sp2 would be a good start if possible.

Try removing it from C Cleaner.

Google Earth has its own un-installer.

Use that

Try the age old remedy for any software that might have been damaged along the way - reinstall it completely and then uninstall.

Thanks buteman, will try that.

Jackoms, looked for its own uninstaller but could not find it.

Tried PA28s method of downloading and then removing. That did the trick. Thanks PA28 and everyone for suggestions.
