google earth and hotmail.

when i go into google earth and then into view in google maps, as soon as i drag the yellow man onto the street map, google earth dissapears. is anyone else having this problem ?

secondly, i normally have three hotmail email accounts that were all linked to enable me to flick between email addresses rather than log off and on each time, this has now dissapeared and guess what, yes you got it, i have to log in and out each time. i get the message that this facility is unobtainably at this time but that was over a week ago. can someone check it out for me please or tell me how to sort it.

thanks a lot

I don't think that you mean Google Earth. Google Earth is a stand alone program that has street view too and is many ways identical in what you view to Google Maps. Google Maps is accessed through your browser and on satellite view you can drag the yellow man to get street view. Do you mean that Google Maps then crashes or do you mean that you no longer can get back to the overhead imagery?

Hotmail through webmail? Don't use it so cannot help with that.

hya and yes i mean google earthe with street veiw but the only way i can see it in street view is to go to edit then view in google maps, this then puts the street view up and allows me to drag the yellow man to the blue outlined streets. as soon as i let go of the yellow man, google earth dissapeares. and yes i do have the street view box ticked. is there somewhere else i should be looking for street view ??

I didn't initially understand what you meant - you mean File then view in Google Maps. Google Earth crashed for me too when I tried to view Street View that way.

In Google Earth to view street view zoom in until you see camera symbols and then click on the nearest camera.

Actually I find Street View easier using Google Maps through my browser.
