Google Earth update

  thumbscrew 22:35 16 Aug 2010

I use Filehippo Update Checker and today it told me that there was an update to Google Earth. I proceeded with it, only to discover that every time I clicked on the new "updated" version, it closed down and reverted to my set up screen. I've managed to System Restore and got it back. Can anyone advise?

Thanks northumbria, not really though, doesn't seem to address the crashing problem.

The latest version is

Rather than using filehippo I would use the update built into Google Earth. Help - check for updates online and click on the link. Or download direct from Google click here. This should give you a good (bug free) version.

filehippo updated for me ok. i find the update option in earth always says no update available

I updated Google earth with it's own update option as a trial for this thread. Worked fine. This thread actually alerted me to an update.

Sorry - no problems here.

I have a similar problem. Google Earth works fine, but as soon as I go into streetview it crashes, or occasionally I get a message that it has encountered an error and must close. I am running Windows 7 - 64bit.

Can't find a 'little man' to move onto a street?
