Google Earth

I downloaded and installed Google Earth Free
I now have an open window titled
Google End User Licence Agreement
I cant get rid of it
There are no symbols to close it /minimise etc
It is just stuck in the middle of the screen
I un-installed Earth Free
and re-booted
But the offending window is still there
Help please
Your advice will be very much appreciatedThanks in advance

Is there not a box within that window to tick that you have 'agreed' .... it is a long time since I first installed mine so I can't remember exactly, but it is what usually happens, you have to agree to the licence terms to be able to use the program - the window should then disappear.

Well its just a default window saying
This program cant be displayed
There is no action box or any other action that I can see
And I cant get rid of it???
Very strange really
It just seems stuck there!!

Try the Google Earth Forum via Google and ask why it says 'this program cant be displayed'

Perhaps your system is not compatible.

Meanwhile, run www,ccleaner,com in its default settings (do not make any changes), this may get rid of that window.

Run CCleaner
No luck I'm afraid
Its still there
I'll try the google forums ??

I have found the solution!!
I ran Windows defender and found an unsigned item running
I hightlighted the item and the details showed that it was a Google related thingy!!!!
I clicked on End Process
And the offending window disappeared
More good luck than good management
But its worth noting as apossible remedy!!!
Thanks to all who helped

Just out of interest!
I have installed Earth Free
and this time it works perfectly
The above problem was clearly a odd one that happens occasionally

I am adding an additional comment to the solution here.!!
In spite of the apparent success here.I booted up this morning and found,much to my dismay that this wayward window re-appeared.
So action this day
Find the item using Windows Defender and "End Process" again.
This time ,however I noted the location of other google detailed files
I found a folder in the program folder on C drive
and manually deleted them.
Then ran CCleaner
(cleaned the registry)
There is now, no google related items on this machine.......hopefully
A cautionary tale perhaps but not one that I expected with my new machine (Toshiba laptop)
