    I downloaded GoogleEarth to bot my PC and Laptop. Both run on XP and have same progs installed.
    When trying to use GEarth on my PC, it freezes and crashes and when rebooting, other progs are affected. Does not happen on my Laptop though, everything is OK there.
    Have seen a note on screen about some graphic not functioning. If I remove the GEarth prog, everything runs smoothly again.
    Any suggestions?

    Desktop computers older than 4 years old may not be able to run it. - Mine is 18 months old.

    Do you have the latest Video Drivers installed?

    If you meet all other requirements, give that a try?
